A flying replica used in the movie “Fly Boys” she was built to the original specifications and technical drawings researched and provided by Walt Redfern, renowned WWI aircraft authority.

The exceptions are the original Le Rhone rotary engine has been replaced by a Lycoming 0 -360 for both ease of maintenance and safety reasons, a tail wheel has been added for the sake of hard surface runways and a 12 volt electrical system has been installed to accommodate current avionics. Airshow ready, this aircraft has been featured in numerous airshows and always draws a huge crowd.
The most recognized WW-I aircraft ever built, the legend of Baron Von Richthofen lives on in this very special aircraft.
