WoN chairman Øyvind M. Ellingsen has contracted Craft-Labs in Vienna to
build a Bleriot XI-2 replica. It is due to be delivered in late 2008.
It will be based at an airfield near Oslo, but it will also be possible to
dismantle it for transportation by road, so that it can be displayed at
airshow around the country and abroad.
The Bleriot will (of course) fly with an original Le Rohne rotary engine, and
will be be a copy of the aircraft used by Tryggve Gran when he
crossed the North sea with a Bleriot XI-2 in 1914.
