Fokker Dr.I Triplane

By 1917, the first World War was well underway. And while the Allies and Central Powers battled for inches down below, a new form of warfare was raging high above. The emergence of the British Sopwith Triplanes put the Central Powers on the back foot, prompting them to create a triplane of their own. After several prototypes, the Fokker Dr.I was born. And with it, the battle record of one of the greatest ace pilots to ever fly was sealed.

The Red Barron

At the beginning of WWI, Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen was a cavalry reconnaissance officer serving on the Eastern and Western Fronts.

After distinguishing himself as an elite fighter pilot, Richthofen was promoted to leader of Jasta 11. Officially credited with 80 air combat victories, he was a German national hero and was widely respected by his enemies who dubbed him the “Red Baron”. His final 21 combat victories were recorded while flying the Fokker Dr.I, and it was in this favoured triplane that he was eventually killed near Vaux-sur-Somme on 21 April 1918.
