Fokker Dr.I: Walkin’ the Tri.

Superb action photo of a Fokker Triplane of the Jasta 27 taken at Halluin-Ost near Flanders, May 1918. The Dr.I was already an obsolescent design by then, yet still very useful in good hands. Those ground crewmen aided in guiding the fighter during its cumbersome ground running prior to take-off.

By the way, at that time the Jasta 27 Staffelführer was a guy called Hermann Göring.
