Meet the Fokker! A WWI replica, hand-built and powered by a lawn mower engine…

It could be a stunt from a First World War epic  –  the German fighter plane preparing to swoop in for an air battle to the death. But while the replica Fokker Eindecker looks like a Hollywood prop, the plane was actually built by amateur pilot Dave Stephens at his home. The single-seater is one of two self-assembled aircraft that he regularly takes to heights of up to 10,000ft over Essex.
