Gnat T.1 N936FC at Calverton, 20th September 2003; Dennis Wong

Sold to the USA in 1997, this Gnat was restored to airworthiness by John Mulvey in Colorado and flew on 3rd June 1999. She was delivered to her new owner Frank Chiodo in October 1999 - Frank's Italian ancestry explains the unusual Italian colour scheme! It can now be seen at airshows in the USA and is pictured here taking off at the New York Airshow (at the snappily-named Calverton Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Airport) in September 2003.
