In Pictures: Inside a modern biplane factory

In a complex of hangars deep in the Sussex countryside, a team of engineers is restoring and rebuilding early 20th Century aircraft. The brainchild of engineer Guy Black, Retrotec is actually modern biplane factory.
It specialises in rare examples of World War One planes including a Bristol F2B Fighter and DH9 bomber; as well as Hawker Nimrods, a Hawker Fury and a Hawker Hart from the 1930s era.
The company has clients including museums and private customers.
