Fokker Dr.I Triplane

A potent little fighter, the Fokker Dr.I triplane proved itself a deadly opponent of Allied scouts, especially in the hands of such master pilots as the legendary “Red Baron”, Manfred von Richthofen. However, the aircraft was dogged by structural weaknesses and, in many ways, was outperformed by its contemporaries. The Dr.1 began as an attempt to replicate Britain’s Sopwith Triplane. Anthony Fokker’s company […]

Fokker D.VII

An outstanding fighter, the Fokker D.VII was greeted with relief by hard-pressed German pilots when it entered service on the Western Front in April 1918. It proved lethally effective in combat sensitive, delightful to fly, and highly manoeuvrable. The new biplane had been rushed into production niter its prototype won a German military competition for single-seat fighting scouts in January 1918. By […]

Fokker E. III

Germany’s Fokker monoplanes dominated the skies over the Western Front from July 1915 to early 1916. The key to their success was a synchronisation mechanism that allowed the pilot to fire a machine gun trought he propeller arc. The first “point-and-shoot” aeroplane was French – a Morane monoplane with crude bullet deflectors on its propeller blades. It was only after examining a […]

Fokker F.VII/3m

In the I920s Dutch planemaker Anthony Fokker, who had built aircraft in Germany during World War I, successfully turned to munufacturing civil aircraft in his native Netherlands. His single-engine F.VII airliner, with a Fokker trademark welded-steel-tube fuselage frame, was a huge commercial success in Europe. In an effort to crack the nascent American market, Fokker added two extra engines to the F.VII, creating […]

Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5a

It is debatable whether the nifty S.E.5a or the Sopwith Camel was the finest British single-seat fighter of World War I. Certainly, the former was easier to fly, killing and maiming far fewer Allied pilots than the unforgiving Camel. The S.E.5 (“S.E.” for “Scout Experimental”) was designed to exploit the potential of the innovatory Hispano-Suiza in-line engine; the S.E.5a, which was […]

AircoD.H.2

The D.H.2 was a compact, little fighting scout that served Britain’s Royal Flying Corps ( RFC) well in the fieree air battles over the Somme in 1916. Designed by Geoffrey de Havilland of the Aircraft Manufacturing Company (Airco). it was developed from the larger D.H.1. A pusher propeller was set behind the wings, leaving a free field of fire for the Lewis […]

Vickers Gunbus

While it did not remotely resemble the modern idea of a fighter aircraft, the Vickers F.B.5 Gunbus(F.B. stood lor Fighting Biplane) was nevertheless one of the first machines to be purpose-built for air-to-air combat. Initially ordered by the British Admiralty, the biplane eventually served with both the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service. Viekcrs needed to find a way of […]

Sopwith Camel

The famous Sopwith F.1 Camel destroyed more German aircraft than any other World War I fighter, although it also had an unfortunate reputation for killing its own pilots. It was named for the “hump” over the two Vickers machine guns mounted in front of the cockpit. The aircraft was powered hy a rotary engine, and engine, armament, and pilot were all concentrated at the […]

Bristol F.2B Fighter

The Bristol Fighter was one of a new generation of British aircraft deployed on the Western Front in 1917, Designed by Captain Frank Barnwell, it was a solid, versatile, two-seater fighter-reconnaissance aeroplane with excellent all-round performance. The first version, the F.2A, made its maiden flight on 9 September 1916; the faster F.2B followed shortly after. When the Bristol Fighter first entered service with the […]

Focke-Wulf Fw 190

Designed by Kurt Tank, the Fw 190 is considered Germany’s best single-seat fighter of World War II. When the first production model, the Fw 109A-1, entered Luftwaffe service in mid-1941, it took Allied intelligence completely by surprise because its air-cooled BMW radial engine gave il the appearance of an American fighter rather than a German one. Disturbingly for the RAF, the Fw […]
