D.V Luftstreitkrafte Jasta 27, Hermann Goering

Historical Note:


When people think of Hermann Goering, many will see him as a rotund figure of WWII, who epitomised the inefficiencies within the Luftwaffe.  In his youth, however, Göring was a dashing and highly capable fighter pilot, who quickly rose to prominence within the German Air Service, collecting promotions and decorations along the way.  He was credited with 22 confirmed victories on the Western Front and was awarded the ‘Pour le Mérite’ or ‘Blue Max’ – Germany’s highest order of merit, which was awarded as recognition of extraordinary personal achievement. 

The Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. The D.V was the final development of the Albatros D.I family, and the last Albatros fighter to see operational service. Despite its well-known shortcomings and general obsolescence, approximately 900 D.V and 1,612 D.Va aircraft were built before production halted in early 1918. The D.Va continued in operational service until the end of the war.

World War 1 Fighter - Albatros D.Va [1917] (05:12)
Albatros D.Va reproduction World War One aircraft. In 1916 most German aircraft manufacturers were directed to look at what made the Allied Nieuport fighters so effective, and to incorporate those elements into their new aircraft designs. Albatros redesigned their D.II model as a sesquiplane, like the Nieuports, with a lower wing with a narrower chord width than the upper wing. The resulting D.III was a great new aircraft and established itself as a formidable fighter throughout 1917. In mid-1917 the D.V/Va was an attempt to improve on the D.III to keep up with newly deployed Allied aircraft such as the R.A.F. S.E.5a and Sopwith Camel. The D.Va was strengthened and had a streamlined oval fuselage instead of the flat sided one of the D.III. However, these and other minor changes were not enough to keep the D.Va at the forefront of fighter technology. By early 1918 the D.III and D.Va were being replaced at the front by new Fokker Dr.1s and then D.VIIs. Despite this the aircraft remained in active service through until the Armistice in November 1918.
