Fokker Dr.1 Triplane
Fokker Triplane For Sale

After witnessing the success of eneny triplanes, the Germans rushed the manufacturing of their own beginning in January of 1917. The Fokker Triplane for sale was deployed in October of 1917, joining the famous Jagdgeschwader 1 of the Red Barron by mid-month.

Initially pilots encountered problems with wing failures during extreme maneuvers. All aircraft were recalled for inspection. A number had to be refitted with new wings. All Fokker Triplane airplanes for sale were redeployed by the end of November 1917.

The Fokker Triplane became famous as one of the aircraft flown by Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron. Its three wings make it stand out from the more common biplane fighter aircraft of its day.

A number of other aces also flew the Fokker Triplane. From September 3rd to September 23, 1917, Lt. Werner Voss downed ten enemy aircraft while flying a prototype, and Lt. Carl Jacobs downed forty one enemy aircraft.

Pilots appreciated the zoom climb and turning abilities of the Fokker Triplane for sale, but found it relatively under-powered compared with other fighter aircraft. By mid 1918, newer front line fighter aircraft could easily best the airplane and its production ceased.

No other rotary engine fighter aircraft were built in Germany after the Fokker Triplane for sale. A total of 320 were sold.
