KNIGHTS OF THE SKIES
Fokker DrI, 564/17,
JASTA 11, Cappy, December 1917,
Ltn. Werner Steinhauser
Fokker DR1, 564/17 was flown by Ltn. Werner Steinhauser.
He was attached to Jasta 11 in December 1917, and achieved 10 victories.
On June 26th 1918 whilst flying a DVII, he was shot down and killed.
His early Fokker D1, 564/17 was marked with Steinhauser's personal red and golden yellow colours,
which were derived from his former regiment.
The later 564/17 had the yellow cross on the red background reversed,
to a red cross on a yellow background.
Otherwise the cowling and wheels were painted red as was normal for this Jasta.
Steinhauser also had "eyes" painted around the cooling holes on the cowling.
