WWI Aircraft Recreation - Video

If you've been hiding under a rock for the past ten years, you might have missed the goings-on of a merry band of misfits in New Zealand.  Although there is a long history of aviation in the country, recent times have witnessed an escalation.  No longer satisfied with the aircraft left standing, one group is performing mass revivals of ghostly aircraft spirits.
Much like the topography of the island nation itself, its aviation landscape is enough to overwhelm an entire elementary class with dreams.  Wildly colored and differently shaped, each creation belches thunder and smoke - another generation's dragon.  Dedicated craftsmen are stoking the fire.
