The Great War Flying Museum

To honour the pilots who served with gallantry and distinction during the Great War of 1914 – 1918.

Fokker Dr.I

  • Registration: C-GFJK
  • Paint Scheme: Overall red, Manfred von Richtofen
  • Year Completed: 1982
  • First Flight: 30 May 1982
  • Plan set used: Combination Sands/Redfern
  • Engine Type: Warner Super Scarab 165hp
  • Major rebuilds in: 2005, 1993
  • For most of its life this aircraft was painted to represent an all red triplane as flown by Manfred von Richthofen, also known as the Red Baron, although it incorrectly wore the serial Fok. Dr I 103/17. In the winter of 2005 the aircraft was given all new fabric and repainted in more authentic colours to represent Fok. Dr I 477/17. Some controversy surrounds the question of particular serial numbers on the Baron’s all red triplanes. That being said, the museum decided to attempt to replicate the aircraft shown in the famous photographs at Lechelle with the propeller wrapped in a tarp.
