Gnome

This is the 100hp Gnome Monosoupape rotary engine built by Classic Aero Machining Service in New Zealand, the fourth being made.  The first is already flying in an Eindecker in Australia, the second is destined for a Sopwith Camel in the USA, the third on show with the Kip Aero 11/2 strutter and the forth for our second Sopwith Camel in France.

This is the first start up of engine number 3.
