FSX Fokker Dr1 Triplane "The Red Baron". On April 21, 1918 at 10:45 am, Manfred von Richthofen ("The Red Baron") was killed by a single .303 calibre bullet through the heart. This is a representation of the Fokker Dr1 triplane he flew that day, the last in the triology of triplanes, and thus, was...

The Red Baron – one of the most famous and beloved aircraft of all time to many people, myself included. While this legendary piece of kit was out of commission long before I was even a twinkle in my father’s eye, it’s still the kind of aircraft that I have so much respect for. After all, without it we would probably have never reached where we are today in aviation. At a time, it was quite revolutionary after all!
Representative of Reality
This FSX take on the aircraft is a wonderful take on a popular piece of kit. The aircraft was home to the famous Manfred von Richthofen, The Red Baron. He was killed on 21st April, 1918, when he was shot through the heart with a .303 caliber bullet. He was in the cockpit of this amazing Fokker DR1 tri-plane. This was his pride of joy and, to many enthusiasts, theirs too.
This was put together with the help of Frank Elton, who put the work into creating the panels and putting it all together in the right way. The Fokker DR1 was a popular form of aircraft, but it’s most appreciated form has got to be this aircraft. I found it so easy to fly, especially considering I was quite apprehensive about even giving it a go. I expected it to feel out of date and terribly hard to fly, but within a few hours I was flying around the Baron himself!
The attention to detail on the model, the cockpit and flight performance is very impressive. The team behind its creation have done a spectacular job of putting this together and making it feel inclusive and fun. I have absolutely no issue in enjoying the quality of the Fokker D1 in this guide; it’s like a fun trip down memory lane for someone like myself.
My one complain would probably be the cramped nature of the actual piloting process. However, given the limitation of the size and shape of the aircraft, it’s hardly the developers fault. Blame the people who came up with the concept for such a challenging aircraft, instead!
The one thing that stood out most to me in terms of the ‘extras’ though was the spinning sections which are visible in the aircraft engine. It’s a nice little touch and makes the whole thing feel a fair bit more alive than it might today.
A Little Minimalist
The lack of instruments was a bit of a bummer, too, but I can understand why. Also, installation was a bit of a challenge- you have to remember to follow the provided instructions. It’s a little bit of a challenge to install compared to other aircraft on the market, but it’s nothing too major. You just need to remember to make the right folders for the aircraft to go into otherwise the simulator can find it hard to locate the aircraft.
That said, it’s a very nice take on what must be a very challenging aircraft to put together.
