Maintenance of a SPAD XIII by FAFLV-Yosuke Maintenance of a SPAD XIII by FAFLV-Yosuke
The SPAD XIII F-AZFP of the Amicale Jean-Batiste Salis during the revision of its engine before the begining of the La Ferté Alais Airshow 2014.

This SPAD XIII is an original one built in February 1918 and is one of the last exemple, and the last airworthy, of the 8000 SPAD XIII built. It was abandonned until the 70s, when it was recovered and restaured by Jean Salis before to take back the skies in 1991. The structure and the engine are original and the fabric and the painting work were reproduced as it was done during the war.
 It has the markings of the Brigadier Henri Trémeau of the SPA 83 "Dragons", January 1918.
