Product Description

WOW038 our second Bristol F2 fighter C814 was flown by Captain Keith Park MC
and DFC, a New Zealander from Thames in the Coromandel Peninsular. Park like
Gordon also served in the infantry at Gallipoli but transferred to the Royal
Flying Corps in December 1917. Whilst with 48 Sqn he was awarded the
Military Cross for downing 3 enemy aircraft in 1 day.  Park finished the war
an Ace with 5 destroyed aircraft confirmed and a further 14 downed out of
control. 
Park remained in the RAF after the war and made a peacetime career in the
service eventually being promoted to the rank of Air Vice Marshal by the
time WW2 commenced. Park was instrumental in the defence of the United
Kingdom during the Battle of Britain and is widely acknowledged to be one of
the greatest aerial commanders of all time, he retired to New Zealand after
the war and died in 1975 aged 82 years old. 
Once again our aircraft is guarded by an Australian sentry not included with
the aircraft but does give you an idea of scale and size. 
Limited to 12 worldwide our Bristol fighter is priced at $499/£300
respectively.
