The WW1 AHT will gather for their 9th chat session this time looking at the most famous Fighters to emerge from the Albatros FlugZeugWerke – the DI through to the DVa that the Trust operates. We will be joined again by Dodge Bailey from the Shuttleworth, John Lanham from TVAL and Scout Builder David Bremner. The evolution of the Albatros Fighters gives a fascinating insight into how the early German aircraft designers identified and solved problems. Few would argue that the DIII was the most successful of the type arriving at the front in late 1916 ahead of the DH2 replacements like the SE5, F2b, and Sopwith Pup. The DIII’s performance was responsible for huge allied losses in the Battle of Arras in April 1917.
