Fokker Short Sleeve White 100% Cotton Gildan T-Shirt
Remembering the WWI German air weapons, the Fokker Dr.I, D.VII, and D.VIII, of Richthofen, Udet, and Sachsenberg.
The designs on these t-shirts are the same basic D.VII, D.VIII, and Dr.I Fokker images as on our Fokker mugs, but tied together with a background of the blueprint plans of the aircraft from various angles. This t-shirt celebrated the museum's 2010 cross-country trip to the Oshkosh airshow.
Some sizes may not be immediately on hand; we will let you know if order fulfillment will take extra time, and you will have an opportunity to cancel the order if the timing doesn't work for you.
The history on the three aircraft:
Fokker D.VII: One of the best WWI fighters, it entered service in 1918, and was the only aircraft specifically mentioned in the Armistice Agreement.
The colors and markings are those of Oberleutnant Ernst Udet, the highest-scoring (62 victories) ace to survive the war. "Du doch nicht", meaning "No you don't" was his message on the tail surfaces to attackers from the rear. Between the wars, he was well-known as an adventurer and flew in several movies. He lived to test-fly and promote dive bombers in early WWII.
Built from original blueprints by Dr. James J. Parks, this aircraft has been in the family, flying, for 40 years.
This aircraft was completed in 2008 from a frame acquired in 2005, by Mike DeSanti, Mark Holiday, and Andy Parks.
