In 1917, Commander Edwin Harris Dunning became the first person ever to land an airplane on a moving ship. While performing trials flying his Sopwith Pup, registered as N6453, he touched down clean onto the HMS Furious. Days later he completed another successful landing but unfortunately, his third attempt resulted in his death. This livery represents the aircraft and the brave pilot, that fearlessly achieved this amazing world first.
A replica of the Pup N5192 can be seen at the Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum. The original was lost on in December of 1916. While being flown by Flight Sub-Lieutenant Stanley Valentine Trapp of the 22nd Wing, Royal Flying Corps, N5192's wings broke up during target practice due to a major structural failure, causing the loss of both pilot and aircraft.
Nicknamed “Julia”, N6442 was assigned to the Anti-Gotha Walmer Defense Flight, flown by a Flight Sub Lieutenant with the initials J.A. The Pup registered N5186, had a very successful career with the Royal Naval Air Service. It was a member of the 8th Squadron to Dunkirk, moving later to the 3rd before finally crashing while with the 4th squadron. Finally, N9917 represents a Pup that has been rebuilt since it's service on the HMS Manxman, and is currently part of the Suhttleworth Collection.
This small collection of liveries carries with it a great deal of history and memories that should not be forgotten; they represent what the Sopwith Pup was capable of, as well as the dedicated service of their respective pilots.
