REPORT ON FOKKER TRIPLANE, March 1918 Reports on German Aircraft 7


A report that is a critical study of the machine that was on view in the Aircraft View Rooms, with preliminary information that had been received from the Expeditionary Force. It notes that “the Fokker appears to be one of the poorest German designs”.
The revolutionary triplane design adopted by Fokker was inspired by the equally successful Sopwith Triplane, and although built in remarkably small numbers, the Fokker Triplane legend has made it the best known aircraft to emerge from World War 1.
