KNIGHTS OF THE SKIES


ACE-15      FOKKER DR1 586/17,  Jasta 4, May/June 1918  (1pc)      US$218


Ltn. Ernst Udet took over the black & white striped DR1 586/17 ,
which had originally been flown by Ltn. Hans Kirschstein
who had returned to Jasta 6.
Udet took command of Jasta 4 and flew the aircraft called the "optical illusion",
the stripes were designed to confuse an enemy attacking the plane.
He added his personal marking "LO" and flew this aircraft
until Jasta 4 was re-equipped with the Fokker D.VII.
Udet had the letters "LO" painted on the side of his aircraft.
This was an abreviation for his fiances nickname "Lola", Eleanore Zink.
He married "Lo" on February 25, 1920; however,
the marriage lasted less than three years.
They divorced on February 16, 1923. It has been said that Udet had many lovers.
