The Fokker Dr.I Tri-plane was Germany’s most famous fighter aircraft in World War One. The Fokker Dr.I was Germany’s response to the British Sopwith Tri-plane, which had been used with great success during the Battle of Arras in April 1917. When one crashed behind German lines, it was stripped down and studied at great length by German aerial designers. The standing of the Sopwith Tri-plane was cemented when the commander of the Imperial German Air Service (IGAS), General von Höppner, publicly praised it. This led to all the German aircraft manufacturers attempting to produce their own version for the IGAS. It was Anthony Fokker who was successful. He had flown a Sopwith Tri-plane and had studied the crashed version at first hand.
In June 1917, Fokker’s chief designer, Reinhold Platz, remodelled a plan he had for a prototype he called D.VI – this was an aircraft he was designing for the Austro-Hungarian air force. The D.VI first flew on July 1st 1917. The famed German ace, Werner Voss, made this first flight.
