Wickham Model E Sunbird II
 
The Wickham Model E Sunbird II is a single seat homebuilt aircraft designed by engineer James M. Wickham.
The Sunbird II is a single place low wing aircraft made primarily of wood. It differs from the Model C by employing tricycle landing gear, a larger wing, and power from a larger 1835cc VW engine.
