Biplane over Canberra

By johnboy - 16 April 2012 17

biplane

This morning we sighted a red biplane progressing across the Canberra sky and even managed to get a photograph which considering the distance we’re pretty happy with.

Any plane nerds want to hazard an identification?

What’s Your opinion?

Considering that the anniversary of Red Barons death is only 5 days away, will suspect that this has brought out this gem.

Were that the case, could they not have found a triplane?

It’s very pretty, whatever sort it is. Somehow planes like this look more like planes should look.

If it’s a bi plane, it doesn’t care about the gender of other planes.

I’d say it’s a Moth, leaning toward Tiger due to its likely age, it’s sprung suspension wheels and it’s apparent swept-wing. Be very happy for correction tho.
