Overview

The Fokker Dr.1 is a World War I fighter aircraft manufactured by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke.It was designed by Reinhold Platz and became widespread in 1918. On August 28, 1917, the only machines to receive the F.1 designation were two pre-production triplanes with serial number 102/17 and 103/17 and arrived at Markebee. These two aircraft were identical to the F.1 except for the addition of wingtip skids. The Dr. 1 offered remarkable maneuverability and initial rate of climb. The Dr.1 has a crew of one. It has a maximum speed of 115 mph and a range of 185 mi.

After World War I, there were very few triplanes which survived the Armistice. A triplane with a serial number 528/17 was retained as a testbed by the Deutschen Versuchsanstalt fur Luftfahrt (German Aviation Institute). In the late 1930s, a triplane with serial number 528/17 was believed to have crashed. During World War II, a triplane with serial number 152/17 obtained three kills and became the centerpiece of Germany's new aviation museum in Berlin. Currently, there are no known original example of Dr. 1s that survived.
