  • 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.

    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 Baron was Killed in Action on on April 21 1918 by Captain A. Roy Brown, from Canada, flying a Sopwith Camel

     JG.1 was formed from four aerial fighting units, or Jastas. It took  to the skies in June, 1917 under the flamboyant command of Manfred von Richthofen  and soon gained fame among its Allied opposition, and was known as "Richthofen's  Flying Circus."

    German Fokker Eindecker

    The Eindecker was the first fighter monoplane in WW1 and it was also the first aircraft to fire through the props using a synchronized machine gun where the bullets didn't hit the propeller.  Other aircraft on both sides of the conflict allowed firing the machine guns through the propeller but only with deflectors on the prop to keep the bullets from damaging the props.  However even with the deflectors, the bullets put considerable stress on the bullets.  The Eindecker's synchronized firing mechanism was a major step forward in aerial combat. 

    During the Fokker Scourge in early 1915, for a few months, the Eindecker destroyed the Allies superiority in the air.   To keep the Allies from getting the technology of the synchronized machine gun technology, the German pilots were instructed not to dogfight over Allied territory so the aircraft were primarily used to prohibit Allied access to German Airspace.  In February 1916, the monoplane was used to control the air over Verdum during the German offensive.  By the summer of 1916, the Allied Air Forces regained aerial superiority with the Nieuport 11 "Bebe", the D.H.2 and the F.E.2

    Except for the characteristic Fokker tail plane and the synchronized machine gun, the Eindecker was a direct copy of the Morane Saulnier "Parasol."  The Eindecker did not use ailerons for banking, instead it used the, Wright Brothers invention of wing warping.  This was true of many of the early monoplanes and biplanes.  Even at the end of the Eindeckers life it didn't use ailerons making it more difficult to avoid the more nimble enemy aircraft which did use ailerons in lieu of the wing warping.  The Eindecker used a 100 hp Oberursel rotary engine which was not very reliable.  Engine power reduced with altitude which limited the Eindeckers maximum altitude to about 9800 feet.  Another disadvantage was that the Eindecker took 30 minutes to get to 9000 feet and its maneuverability was very poor at this altitude.  The Eindecker used a single LMG 08/15 7.92 mm machine gun.

    Fokker Trimotor FII

    I am the official and only full-time historian for Jack Frye (former director and president (and an original founder) of Transcontinental and Western Air, Inc. Frye was a close friend of Anthony Fokker and in the late 1920’s the largest West Coast Fokker distributor. Jack bought many planes from Tony for his own airline (Standard Air Lines) and his clients. The man on the ground in the photo is Tony Fokker, and at one time I felt the pilot might be Jack Frye (who flew to New York-- New Jersey to ferry new planes back to his company in Los Angeles on many occasions) but further investigation seems to discount this theory in regard to the date of the image being 1925 (pre-Fokker association for Frye). However; the pilot in the image is a dead ringer for Frye. The plane shown is the FVIIa-3m prototype which was displayed nationwide by Tony Fokker after it was entered in the Ford Reliability Tour of 1925. This plane subsequently became the first triple engine airliner in America service.

    Thank you,
