Northern-Sop-1
 
Shuttleworth Triplane "Dixie II" serial N6290 (G-BOCK), was built by the Northern Aeroplane Workshops from the original drawings, it was seen by the original owner of the Sopwith Aviation Company, Sir Thomas Sopwith, before his death in January 1989 aged 101. He was so impressed with the standard of work that he declared it to be a "late production" machine, rather than a replica, it sports an official Sopwith serial number plate on the engine cowl in recognition of this fact.
