3. Albatros D.III
Germany - 1916
One of the most significant aircraft of the Great War, the Albatros line of fighters formed the backbone of the German fighter force from its introduction during the summer of 1916 to the end of the war. Flown by most of the top German aces, the D.III was chiefly responsible for the infamous “Bloody April” of 1917, a period of German aerial dominance similar to the earlier “Fokker Scourge” that saw droves of Allied aircraft flushed from the sky. This model depicts a famous Albatros flown by Werner Voss, the youngest man to win the Pour le Merite. He had 48 victories by the time of his death at the age of 20.
