The Fokker Dr-1 Triplane was the most well known of the WW1 airplanes.  It was slow and difficult to fly yet it deadly in the hands of an experienced pilot.  This is the plane was flown by the famous Baron Manfred Von Richthofen.  One of the flight features of this airplane was that it was able to momentarily hang on its prop and shoot straight up into the belly of its enemies airplane.

Introduced over the western front in August 1917, the Fokker Triplane soon became  the favorite plane of Germany's greatest WWI ace, Baron Manfred von Richthofen.  

Baron Von Richthofen was the most celebrated of the German Aces.  He shot down a total of 80 planes.  He won the Blue Max Air Medal on Jan 12 1917.  The Barron was Killed in Action on on April 21 1918 by Captain A. Roy Brown, from Canada, flying a Sopwith Camel

Richthofen was part of the JG-1 Fighter Wing which on March 1918 as part of Ludendorffs massive  thrust very nearly decided the war.
