Artist's Description

A WW 1 Dogfight at the Shoreham Airshow 2009

The Fokker Triplane was built by John Day in 2005/6, and 2007 will be its first full season with the Team; it replicates Fokker Dr.1 403/17. This aircraft was flown by Ltn Johann Janzen [13 victories] of Jasta 6, of JG1.

The Sopwith Triplane replica represents N500, which survived until December 1917, and was then struck off charge as being worn out. It had survived several landing and take-off accidents, plus some flak damage which resulted in it being returned to Sopwiths for two new wings. Flight Sub-Lieutenant Roderick Dallas shot down at least two enemy aircraft in it. The aircraft was built by Ernie Hoblyn over a three-year period, and has been active on the display circuit since 1997.
