Biggles... That's No Way to land a Plane !

A pilot had a lucky escape when the replica First World War British fighter plane he was flying nose-dived into the ground after clipping a fence on landing during a public display.
The historic Sopwith Triplane fighter finished nose-down in the turf with its propeller ripped off by the force as rescue teams pulled the stricken pilot from the wreckage at the Shuttleworth Military Pageant.

Weren't Sopwiths notoriously difficult to fly?
Or was that just the Camel?
