Photo Comment

The nimble Nieuport fighters were outgunned by heavier machines towards the end of WWI, and the later models were increasingly used as advanced trainers. French wooden-legged ace Paul Tarascon flew a Nie 24bis named Zigomar 5 for some time, but he too converted to the SPAD S.VII. This replica was flown in 1995 and has an original Le Rhône engine.
