KNIGHTS OF THE SKIES
Fokker DVII (OAW),
Jasta 4, Beugneux, June 1918,
Ltn. Ernst Udet.
Red and White Top Wing
There is some controversy as to exactly how Udets "Candy Striped" D.VII was painted.
This stems from the fact that only one photo is known of this specific plane and it doesn't show the whole aircraft.
The wing stripes are traditionally depicted as red and white,
but black and white stripes are also depicted,
believed to have been inspired by Udet’s earlier experiences with Kirschtein’s simularily striped DR1.
Therefore 2 versions of this iconic plane have been produced.
