Fokker D.VII, Caproni Ca.3, Red Baron
The National Museum of the Air Force... ...(formerly the U.S. Air Force Museum) at Wright-Patterson A.F.B. has a huge collection of aircraft and accessories. Here is there Fokker D.VII, Caproni Ca.3, and artifacts from the crash of Rittmeister Von Richthofen.
Why so many duplicate photos of the Fokker? They really are not quite duplicates -- look closely. To try to provide you with the best mix of color and detail, I shot the same view with and without flash, and other settings. Being 25 feet off the floor limited my ability to present you the detail I'd like to.
The Caproni was a bit easier yet is size posed challenges.
Von Richthofen's artifacts are marred by being behind glass and poorly lite for photography.
I have about 100 more photographs from the museum's early aviation through The Great War series. Keep a watch for these!
