The Albatros D.III was flown by many top German aces during World War One, including Wilhelm Frankl, Erich Löwenhardt, Manfred von Richthofen, Karl Emil Schäfer, Ernst Udet, and Kurt Wolff and was the preeminent fighter during the period of German aerial dominance known as ‘Bloody April’ 1917. The D.III entered squadron service in December 1916, and was immediately acclaimed by German aircrews for its manoeuvrability and rate of climb. Peak service was in November 1917, with 446 aircraft available on the Western Front. Includes a full walkaround of a replica D.III and scale plans and profiles by Jan Polc.
