    • WOW155 – AVRO ‘RNAS’ – The Avro 504 was a two seater First World War biplane aircraft made by the Avro aircraft company and under licence by others. Production during the war totalled 8,970 and continued for almost 20 years, making it the most-produced aircraft of any kind that served in WW1, in any military capacity, during that conflict. More than 10,000 were built from 1913 until production ended in 1932.
    • WOW157 – ME262 ‘Trainer’ – The Messerschmitt Me 262, nicknamed Schwalbe (German: “Swallow”) in fighter versions, or Sturmvogel (German: “Storm Bird”) in fighter-bomber versions, was the world’s first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. Design work started before World War II began, but problems with the engines, metallurgy and top-level interference kept this aircraft from operational status with the Luftwaffe until mid-1944. The Me 262 was faster and more heavily armed than any Allied fighter, including the British jet-powered Gloster Meteor. One of the most advanced aviation designs in operational use during World War II, the Me 262’s roles included light bomber, reconnaissance and experimental night fighter versions.
    • WOW159 – Nieuport ‘Monkey’ – The Nieuport 11, nicknamed the Bébé, was a French World War I single seat sesquiplane fighter aircraft, designed by Gustave Delage.It was the primary aircraft that ended the Fokker Scourge in 1916 The type saw service with several of France’s allies, and gave rise to the series of “vee-strut” Nieuport fighters that remained in service (latterly as trainers) into the 1920s.
      During the course of the Battle of Verdun in February 1916, the combination of the Nieuport 11s technical advantages and the concentration of the fighters within the first dedicated fighter units allowed the French to establish air superiority, forcing radical changes in German tactics.
      Some Nieuport 11s and 16s were even fitted to fire Le Prieur rockets from the struts for attacks on observation balloons and airships.
    • WOW170 – ARADO ‘Rumanian’– The Arado Ar 196 was a shipboard reconnaissance low-wing monoplane aircraft built by the German firm of Arado originally in 1936, ostensibly for a requirement by the Kriegsmarine for a new aircraft design for its Capital ships. In 1937 it was selected as the winner of this design contest and thereafter became the standard aircraft for the Kriegsmarine throughout World War II.
      The plane was loved by its pilots, who found that it handled well both in the air and on the water. With the loss of the German surface fleet towards the end of the war, the Arado’s were added to coastal squadrons and continued to fly reconnaissance missions and submarine hunts into late 1944.
