BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FOKKER DR. 1, Tri-Plane was the favorite plane of Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron, who is credited with 80 victories before he was shot down and killed.
He flew it from September 1917 until his death in April 1918, accounting for the last 20 of his kills. Built by the Dutch airplane designer Anthony Fokker, the Dr. 1 was powered by the 9 cylinder rotary Oberursel UR II engine. It could climb to 3000 ft in under 3 minutes and had a ceiling of 19,000 ft. It had a high roll rate and was difficult to fly.Only the best pilots could master it, but deadly in the hands of those who did.
