We are writing to let you know about a recently (2008) finished Fokker Dr1 from Ron Sands plans, in the UK.  It has taken 4 years, 3500 hours. 
The first test flight took place on April 26th (2008) at Sywell Aerodrome, Northants, UK. The test flight programme has been carried out by Matthew Boddington.  
We have put up a website at www.jastabinksaviation.com and this website contains details of our Dr1 and also details of the range of services.  Paul and his Company offers to other homebuilders and organisations; including wood and metal work, CAA approved welding, covering, painting, restorations, dummy engines, etc. 

The Dr1 appeared at a public display for the first time on August 24th (2008), at the Sywell Show.
