FOKKER DR.I: HOW DID THEY DO THAT?

After being inspired by the British ‘Sopwith’ triplane, the Germans developed their own version: the Fokker Dr.I. The first two were given to the squadron of Manfred von Richthofen in August 1917 (known by the Allies as the ‘Red Baron’), who took one as his personal plane and painted it red. Its exceptional manoeuvrability made it ideal for the kind of air combat that was being waged on the Western Front.
