Biographical / Historical
The Albatros series of single-seat fighters produced between 1916 and 1918 were among the most numerous and distinctive aircraft of the First World War, the Albatros D.Va remaining in production until April 1918. Despite their numbers, only two Albatros fighters have survived (both D.Va models). One, bearing a distinctive marking of "Stropp" on the side of the fuselage, has been in the collection of the National Air and Space Museum since 1952 [A19500092000]. The Museum completed its restoration of the Albatros D.Va in 1979.
