Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Movie (1938)
French title : Trois camarades

Robert Taylor (Erich Lohkamp)
Margaret Sullavan (Patricia Hollmann)
Franchot Tone (Otto Koster)
Robert Young (Gottfried Lenz)

(Synopsis needed)

re-engined Fokker D.VII

Most of the Fokker D. VII were dismantled in order the terms of the Armistice. But a great number still in flying condition and sized by the winners were sold to Polish, Dutch, Swiss and Belgian air forces. USA inherited of 142 airframes. But in 1938, this formidable aircraft is no longer in active duty and very few have been preserved.
We can see that the original Mercedes D.IIIa powerplant has been replaced by another engine (or maybe no one but just a cowling with a different front radiator; there is no exhaust).
The aircraft is acting as a fighter from the Luftstreitkräfte (air force of the German Empire) but is devoid of national markings. Jasta 16 has had a Fokker with a checkered band but not the same way.
