The Nieuport 17 was a single-seater biplane fighter. Created in Second Life by Terra Aeronautics, the plane was based on the real-life Nieuport 17, a French fighter aircraft used during the First World War.

Background

Terra's Nieuport 17 was intended to be a replica of the aircraft flew by Canadian Fighter Ace, Billy Bishop. In 1917 Bishop flew his Nieuport 17 in combat against German pilots, including an engagement with Manfred von Richthofen — the infamous “Red Baron”. By the end of the war, Bishop had shot down 72 enemy aircraft. Among Allied aces, he was second only to René Fonck, with 75.[1]
