The Sopwith Triplane was a British single seat fighter aircraft designed and manufactured by the Sopwith Aviation Company during the First World War. It was the first military triplane to see operational service. The Triplane joined Royal Naval Air Service squadrons in early 1917 and was immediately successful. It was nevertheless built in comparatively small numbers and was withdrawn from active service as Sopwith Camels arrived in the latter half of 1917. Surviving Triplanes continued to serve as operational trainers until the end of the war.
Today there are just two left flying. We took one for night shoots with “Wonder Woman” and it suffered the shameful indignity of having German crosses put on it. Still really looked the part though!
If you’re working on something WW1 and the Sopwith might deserve a part then feel free to give us a call to discuss.
