Cute little Fokker....And a Merry Christmas to all your family, and thanks for all the fun this year.
Merry Christmas to you and your family as well! Lot's of fun in store for next year.
That's not a Fokker. That is an Albatross. It was in 1916 the worlds only production stressed skin all wood aircraft. "The Red Barron" Barron Von Rictoffen (spell?) racked up more than half his 80 kills in that type.---Ray
Sadly, "Albatross" isn't funny...And at the risk of indulging my pedantry, that's Baron von Richtofen.
maybe he was related to Trump's kid? And what was Snoopy's proper title?
WW1 ushered a golden age of aces the in turn led to the development of the penultimate in piston engine (and early jets) in WW2. The Albatross, the Pfalz, the Fokkers were all so classic. When I was a kid I wanted to own one and fly it. That thought never left me. Should I buy an ultralight to scratch that itch?
One word for you, LL. Pietenpol.
perhaps an LSA? sport pilot is a good deal and LSAs have a lot of convenience for the pilot type folks that just want to have a lot of fun with out the bugs in the teeth. but that is my thought. please indulge yourself and scratch the hell out of the itch. Just do it.
