Royal Italian Air Force, Fokker D-VIII ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
The Fokker EV,later designated the D VIII,was one of the most controversial aircraft produced by Fokker in WW 1. It was a masterpiece of simplicity, the designer, Reinhold Platz, had cut to the bone all the struttery and wire bracing and the result was undoubtedly the "cleanest" fighter of the time.It was nicknamed "The Flying Razor"for obvious reasons. It was flight tested with glowing reports of it's speed, handling and manoeuvrbility. It could be produced using much less man hours than it's contemporaries.There is little doubt that if sufficient numbers had been available in time, it would have been a real thorn in the side of the allies. The Fokker D VIII was never proven in combat, apart from one aerial victory. Italy received three Fokker D VIII after the end of WW1 as "War Damages Compensation", these aircrafts were based on Montecelio (Guidonia) Airport, near Rome and were used only for tests. After 1930 they were sold to civil pilots. This aircraft, with I-ELIA code, were used during the 1931's "Air Show" (Giornata dell'Aria) at 'Littorio' Airport (Rome) and were demolished during 1940. Textures only for Frank Elton's fs2004 Fokker D-VIII model (PEGASUS AVIATION DESIGN). Repaint by Manuele Villa.
