For some time in 1917 the Fokker Triplane was the scourge of the Flanders� skies. Much more manoeuvrable than the current RFC aircraft the �Tripe� was instrumental in the near total failure of the Allied air arm in that year. Front-line aircrew service life averaged less than three weeks and new pilots were pitched into the fray with about 10-12 hrs total flying experience. This group falling on a pair of unsuspecting French Nieuports.
The Dr1 served with the famous Richthofen Circus which was instantly recognisable by the varied colour schemes adopted for individual aircraft. Effective for only a few months - very effective as the �Red Baron� gained 20 of his victories flying the type - the Dr1 was withdrawn from service by mid 1918 after a rash of wing failures laid at the door of shoddy construction. Hermann Goering, the Luftwaffe leader in WW2, served with this elite group.
