Replica Plane Dons Longview Yard

A Longview man is drawing a lot of attention for an unusual yard decoration that honors a an American World War I Ace. Homer Humphrey, 78, has built a scale replica of a WWI bi-wing fighter to honor Eddie Rickenbacker. The scale model Spad 7, was made from bamboo and some pipe, and even has replica Vickers machine guns, made from coffee cans.

A stuffed Snoopy even sits at the controls.  The Air Force veteran did it for the love of modeling.
