Fokker Dr.I –  “Replicas”

fokker triplanes 140x105The Fokker Dr.I collection of the museum may be the largest number of “Dreidecker” (meaning three wings) replicas in one place.  
The Dr. is perhaps the most recognizable aircraft of WWI.  It was thought by some to be too slow and too small until it became obvious that its superior maneuverability made it a potent weapon.  Flying a prototype, Werner Voss shot down 10 British aircraft in six days of combat.
Baron von Richthofen shot down his last 20 aircraft in Dr.I’s and the Baron told Tony Fokker that it “climbed like a monkey and maneuvered like the devil”.
There are many replicas of the Dr.I flying, but no originals survive.
