The full list is at http://www.airshow.com.au/airshow2015/PUBLIC/aircraft-display/civilian-display-performers.asp Replicas Fokker Dr.I Airco DH.5 Camel Nieuport 11 Fokker D.VII Pfalz D.III And the below are TVAL-built reproductions Bristol F.2B R.E.8 Fokker D.VIII S.E.5a I was at the TVAL Flying Weekend yesterday (somewhat less crowded hangar than normal!). The most-junior pilot was looking forward to re-rigging the R.E.8 the least. I'll be doing a post here about the pre-WW2 aircraft at the recent Wings Over Wairarapa show and the Flying Weekend soon-ish, probably this upcoming weekend.

The Bristol F2B is the replica, ZK-JNU. Of the above there will be three rotaries, something new for those who have never heard one.
