Fokker Dr. 1 Triplane
In 1917, this German aircraft made its debut in the skies over France in World War I. Exceptionally maneuverable, yet prone to wing failure, the Fokker Dr.1 was renowned as the aircraft flown by Manfred von Richthofen, the “Red Baron”.
The museum is currently constructing a full-scale replica of this famous aircraft, funded in part by the Board of Directors of the Hiller Aviation Museum. The project is scheduled for completion in 2017, the 100th anniversary of the aircraft’s original manufacture.
