Lt. Joseph Jacobs flew this Fokker DR1 450/17
from 28th February 1918,
until it was apparently destroyed by Sopwith Camels
during an attack on the Jasta 7 aerodrome on 19th October 1918.

The Dr I was Jacob's favoured mount until October 1918
and he used its manouverability to his advantage,
becoming the triplane's highest scoring ace,
with over 30 confirmed victories.
The plane was painted with wide boardered crosses in the usual positions,
as well as on the top surface of the bottom wing.

There is very little accurate visual evidence for the image
painted on the side of the fuselage.
The image has been referred to by Jacob's wife
as the "god of the north wind",
by Jacob himself as "Dark Angel",
and "Devils Head".
