Thoe are awesome images!  The first one especially- probably one of the best if no the best WWI image I have ever seen.  Thanks for posting them!

edi, you're a funny guy Grin!!!!!!!!  On a serious note though and from what I've read, the Fokker monoplanes far surpassed the Pfalz monoplanes and that is probably the reason you can find much more about the Fokkers versus the Pfalz.  However, the Fokker biplanes and triplanes far surpassed the Fokker Eindecker ?????????????  Guess it had to do with the adaption of the synchronized machine gun.  Oh well, I guess I need to keep looking.

OOPS, Thanks for the brief history Kurt and the attatched photo.  I am assuming they didn't put the iron cross on the elevator and the wing ribs were lined in black simialar to the A1.  You wouldn't have any closer views of the front end of her would you?????  Thanks again.

Hi Greg,
Twenty were built and three entered service but by that time even though they were faster than the earlier Pfalz monoplanes, the new German Albatros and Halberstadt biplanes obsoleted them.


Yeah, what else would you expect from a plane with only a single wing Wink

Hi Greg,
I dug through my information that Roy Houchin sent me on his research for the EV and he sent this photo.

According to Jack Herris's book "Pfalz Aircraft of World War I", the Pfalz EV was powered by a 100 hp Mercedes in line water cooled engine. It was cooled by an automobile type radiator mounted in the nose.  It was based on the E IV airframe, an enlarged wing (10.2m) of the EI design. It had a maxium speed of 165kph. Twenty were built and three entered service but by that time even though they were faster than the earlier Pfalz monoplanes, the new German Albatros and Halberstadt biplanes obsoleted them.

Pfalz "E" type information

Do any of you guys out there have any information or links to information on the Pfalz "E" type aircraft?  I have found multitudes of history, info and pictures of the Pfalz DIIIa's etc.... but it seems like there is nothing out there on the monoplanes.   Cry  I have ordered the Pfalz EV short kit from Kurt which I plan to tackle after the EIII project and I am not having any luck getting any information whatsoever.  Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer.
