When people think of Hermann Goering, many see him as a rotund figure of World War II, who epitomized the inefficiencies within the Luftwaffe. In his youth, however, Göring was a dashing and highly capable fighter pilot, who quickly rose to prominence within the German Air Service collecting promotions and decorations along the way. Goering was credited with 22 confirmed victories on the Western Front and was awarded the ‘Pour le Mérite’ or ‘Blue Max’ – Germany’s highest order of merit that was awarded as recognition of extraordinary personal achievement.Die-cast metal fuselage

The Albatros D.V was a biplane fighter aircraft operated by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Army Air Service) during World War I. The Albatros surpassed all other aircraft during the period of German aerial dominance known as ‘Bloody April’ in 1917, due in part to its two 7.92mm LMG 08/15 machine guns and a top speed of 109 mph. Following the successful D.I and D.II, the D.V utilized the same plywood-skinned fuselage. Development of the D.III started in late July or early August 1916 with the first flight occurring in late August or early September. The aircraft entered squadron service in December 1916 and remained in frontline use well into 1918.
