Product Description

Manfred von Richthofen, was the highest scoring German ace of World War One with eighty confirmed kills and a further twenty unconfirmed. With the nickname ‘the Red Baron’ he is possibly the most well known fighter ace of all time. Although best known for the all red triplane in which he was eventually shot down and killed, Richthofen actually flew several different triplanes. Fokker Dr1, serial number 152/17, was the aircraft in which he scored victories sixty-four, sixty-five and sixty-six. Only partially painted in the Baron’s colours, this aircraft boasted a red cowling, wheel covers, upper wing, struts and rear fuselage. Following the Armistice DR1 152/17, as one of the few surviving Fokker triplanes, was used as a centerpiece display in Berlin’s Zeughaus Museum. With the bombing of Berlin during World War Two, the aircraft was evacuated east to Poland for safety but was lost and its fate still remains unknown to this day.
