Another New Zealand Link to Oshkosh 2019 - Kip Aero Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter Replica

I have discovered another nice link to New Zealand aviation at Oshkosh 2019.

This link is the Kip Aero full size Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter replica N5539 (US registration and RFC serial number) which is painted with a Kiwi on the side.

And the New Zealand connection is that the engine is an exact replica  Classic Aero Machining Services (CAMS) Gnome Monosoupape 100 HP rotary that is manufactured in Blenheim.
