H.Levy - The flying razor
The Replica Fighter Museum’s Arganbright-built Fokker D VIII replica N111EV aloft near its base at Lake Guntersville, Alabama.
The D VIII lifts off. Its clean, unbraced cantilever wing was a major innovation which gave rise to the aircraft’s nick­name “the Flying Razor”.
The D VIII wears the markings of E V 111/18, one of the first ten aircraft delivered to Jasta 6 in 1918.
N111EV carries out a low-level "close support attack" on the airfield at Lake Guntersville during last year’s Aerodrome ’92 meeting.
The D VIII looks a little out of place taxying on Guntersville’s modern tarmac.
