Nieuport 28 <> #Aviation *Initially misidentified as a Tiger Moth*

    Actually, it's their (MAV) Sopwith Strutter. The paint scheme and wing brace wiring matches. These aircraft both used the same/similar engine. The 28 had vent panels on top of the engine and the Strutter doesn't.

    After careful examination of Nieuport 28 and 28C photos, I am updating the item's identification, as I believe it to be a model of the Nieuport 28. Thanks to David Fuller for his assistance.

    This was taken at the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I will have a look at the Nieuport 28 to see if it matches up. Once I get this positively identified I can update the original blog post and this pin. Thanks, David.

    What museum was the picture taken in? It could be a Nieuport 28.

    There was a sign posted next to it that indicated it was a Tiger Moth, apparently misplaced. I have since learned that it is not but the plane may be a Nieuport from WWI. Now that you've told me what it's not, can you tell me what it is with accuracy? A few aviation buffs have been uncertain, perhaps you can assist.
