Fokker DR1 at the Sywell Airshow 2010.
a nearly 100 year old plane still rising into the blue yonder simply astounding!
I love this plane, it was the first model iI had ever made by airfix: I was three years old and i could never glue the third wing.
reminds me of the red baron.
lol.. I went to fave this and discovered it already was faved!
I'm a sucker for these old planes, love it.
color color color! i love it :-D
We do like our color, we do.
WoW!! this is the PORSCHE of th sky!!
In my opinion, the best plane created of all time! Truly a great shot!
Love that plane. How did you get that angle? Were you in the air also?
The Red Baron strikes again!!
The Red Baron lives!
One of my favorite aeroplanes of all time, and Lt. Josef Jacobs one of its most impressive pilots. I suspect that he was actually a Jew who the Nazis could silence but could not afford to kill. Wouldn't that be ironic?
What kind of engine did it have the IO-360 180HP engine?
A bit late but I remembered to check eventually. According to G-INFO it has a Lycoming AIO-360-A2B. I have no Idea of it's HP? According to Wiki the A2B variant is outputting 200HP but I don't know enough about engines to be sure?
I wouldn't know I'm afraid. I probably can find out, so I will get back to you. All I know at the moment is that it was one of three that flew at the show.
