See pictures by Christian Van Caenegem annexed. This afternoon the machine was to be assembled.
I heard there was a special reception on thursday 23rd november 2006 to celebrate the restauration of this Nieuport. Are there any full assembled pictured available of this Nieuport?
The machine is given as a Nieuport 23
, while in 1964 in an article in the magazine Air Pictorial it was given by the writer Guy Destrebecq
as a Nieuport 17 C1
Can you elaborate on this? I think during the restauration all sorts of details have come on the surface including model stamps on parts etc.
Hope you can give some information and pictures.
