Greetings all;

Many of you have asked how I get get so much information on a rather esoteric era. I am a long time member of several organizations.

Cross & Cockade Intl.
http://www.crossandcockade.com/

Over the Front
http://www.overthefront.com/

Albatros pub. Ltd.
http://www.windsockdatafilespecials.co.uk/
The above was recently changed fom a .com to co.uk.

These organizattions are available for memberships and individual sales of specific back volumes. Of course it helps that I am the Archivist to the Lafayette Foundation.

Here is a bit of fun from Mr. Rob C. Johnson. His site has been around for many years. "Chandelle" caters to the unique and road less traveled areas of early aviation. Lots of essoteric subjects.

Sorry folks link that was here leads to a dead end with a spammer at the other end. I am removing it. 6.8.13.

Over the Front is at it again!

Not out yet but I hear it will be a bit of fun. Ronny Bar's Jasta 64w profiles are inside the front cover, and Bob Pearson's Fokker C.I types are on the outside rear. Some plugger's article is the second piece. As always, serendipity plays a hand in preparing an issue and Taz surfaced in the nick of time with photo showing a late war Jasta 64w lineup, as a supplemental piece! Manfred Thiemeyer is involved with it so you will see some previously unpublished material. There will be a lot more photos added in, including a nice image from the late Peter Bowers. It was a Fokker factory shot of perhaps a production prototype.

Kudos to the dynamic duo of Steve Ruffin and Aaron Weaver. The Winter Issue is at the printers now before December hit. That is a first in a long time. They have even started work on the Spring Issue now.

So you want to build Fokker Triplanes ?

Run by a dedicated modeler and good fellow, Lloyd Leichentritt . For all or at least most things Dr.I

I have offered to work with him clarifying some of the Ltn. J. Jacobs triplane stuff.

The Fokker E.V / D.VIII has gotten her final coat of paint. The curing room is sealed and Andy our President just pulled up with a complete Fullscale replica Sopwith F.1 "Camel" in the trailer. At this rate it will be two more years before the new Fok. Dr.I replica gets finished.
