Fokker D.VIII

Fokker D.VIII
The Fokker D.VIII was the last German aircraft to be designed and flown in the First World War. It was also the last German plane to score an aerial victory. Its slim profile earned it the name “The Flying Razor” from Allied pilots. Only 85 D.VIII’s were actually in front-line service before the Armistice, but the plane proved to be a worthy compliment alongside the D.VII. Agile and easy to fly, pilots found the D.VIII to be and excellent all around fighter.

This D.VIII is painted in the scheme of Gotthard Sachsenberg, a German ace with 31 victories to his name and winner of the “Blue Max”. After the war, Sachsenberg designed and built the museum’s “Cottbus” aircraft hangar.
