Fokker DR 1
The Fokker DR I is a triplane developed during WW I as a singleseater fighter. Piloted by the “Red Baron”, Rittmeister Manfred von Richthofen, this plane became famous. What made this plane stand out were its manoeuverability and an enormous climbing capacity for that time (from 0 to 1,000 m in less than 3 minutes). Powered by a 9-cylinder engine with 110 hp, the DR 1 reached a maximum speed of approx. 165 km/h. Altogether 322 planes of this type were built from August 1917 through August 1918. The museum‘s exhibit shown at the top and on the left below was originally piloted by Lieutenant Paul Baeumer, Jasta 2 Bölcke. The exhibit shown at the bottom right is a true-to-theoriginal replica of the “Red Baron‘s“ craft.
