For probably the first time since near the end of World War One, FOUR Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2 aircraft fly together in formation.

One of these aircraft, the B.E.2f (second from camera) is an original WW1 veteran. The other three, the dope coloured B.E.2c nearest the camera, and the two B.E.2e's farthest from the camera are all 100% accurate reproduction aircraft built by The Vintage Aviator Ltd in New Zealand.

It is unlikely that another formation like this will happen again in the near future as the two B.E.2e's are now in the northern hemisphere.
