To build a (non-flying) full size replica of British Army Aircraft Number 1A in which Samuel Franklin Cody, on 16 October, 1908 made the first powered, controlled flight in the UK of a heavier than air machine.
The replica, to be completed in time for the 100th Anniversary of that historic flight in October, 2008, is to be built to the drawings prepared by John Roberts based on research over many years by Mrs. Jean Roberts.
The fundamental mandates of the project were authenticity & meeting the October 2008 deadline.
As such, funding and partnerships are being actively sought by the FAST team in order to meet these essential requirements.
