Fokker Dr.I (replica): Once in a lullaby.

Mikael Carlson’s Dr.I, with its French-built Le Rhône 9J rotary smoking gently, over the idyllic South of Sweden. One of the gems build by this Sweden’s aviation “Renaissance” man. In addition to this super triplane, he has also produced a pair of Thulin As (Bleriot XI’s), a lovely Tummelisa and a gorgeous Fokker D.VII. All with contemporary engines. This extraordinary character, an expert in early aviation, also flies his “babies” with serious panache and elan.
