Fokker Dr.1 Triplane – Werner Steinhauser, Jasta 11, JG 1, Luftstreitkräfte, Cappy Aerodrome, France, April 21, 1918 - Last combat sortie of the Red Baron

1:48 Scale.  Length: 4.75”.  Wingspan: 6"

Limited Edition of 1,000 Models Worldwide

Flying one of six Jasta 11 Fokker Dr.1 fighters, which climbed away from Cappy Aerodrome in the mid-morning of Sunday April 21 1918, Werner Steinhauser was beginning to develop into an extremely gifted aviator under the guidance of his inspirational commanding officer Manfred von Richthofen. When he initially joined with Jasta 11 in early 1918, Steinhauser only had a solitary observation balloon victory to his name, but now that he found himself in the company of some of the Luftstreitkräfte’s most gifted fighter pilots, he began to show skill and poise during combat situations and as a consequence, his victory total was increasing.

Flying alongside von Richthofen in his own distinctively marked personal Fokker Dr.1 fighter on the morning of the April 21st, Steinhauser would be involved in the intense fighting with Sopwith Camels of the RAF No. 209 Squadron which ultimately resulted in the death of his mentor. The famed ‘Flying Circus’ never really recovered from the loss of von Richthofen and from this date an ever increasing number of Allied fighters in the air at any one time would result in the loss of the majority of their most successful pilots. Going on to score a further six aerial victories after this fateful day, Werner Steinhauser would himself be shot down and killed near Neuilly on the June 26th, just three days before he would have celebrated his 22nd birthday.

The Fokker Dr.I Dreidecker (Triplane) was a German World War I fighter aircraft built by Fokker Flugzeugwerke. First flown in July 1917, the Dr.I saw widespread service by the spring of 1918 and became renowned as the aircraft in which Manfred von Richthofen, The Red Baron, gained his last 20 aerial victories.
