Rhinebeck bi-planes

I posted a picture of the Nieuport 24 that crashed at Rhinebeck a few days ago. Today I will post a few others that I took that day. I regret that my picture of the famous Fokker Dr I triplane, known for it's association with the "Red Baron", did not come out so well so I did not post it. To be honest the Nieuport 24 picture came out the best in my opinion. I was in a hurry with my point and shoot so the pictures aren't great but they are the best ones I took that day.

This first bi-plane is known as the Albatros. It was a very successful German fighter eary in the war and was the type flown by the "Red Baron" before he flew the Fokker Dr I.

The "Jenny" as it was known was used to train American pilots during the war and became popular with barnstormers when the war was over and they were sold as surplus.

The Fokker DVII was a superior aircraft at the time and led to the second "Fokker Scourge".

A popular hobbyist bi-plane from the 1930's called the Great Lakes T2-1R. In the distance you can see a New Standard D-25 (left) and a Piper Cub (right).
