Vickers Vimy on the way to recreate historic flight

Here's the link to the official website of the team planning to recreate the famous trans-Atlantic flight by John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown from St. John's to Ireland in 1919.

The Vimy left California yesterday and is due to arrive in St. John's around the first of June. Plans are to attempt the ocean crossing in the second or third week of June.

The only model kit I can find of the Vimy is this one, available only by special order from Eastern Express.
