True or Pfalz? Either Way, It’s a Beautiful Airplane

So I got to see the rollout of a magnificent replica Pfalz D.XII World War I fighter plane. This airplane is a 16-year labor of love, built by a father and son out at Deer Valley Airport in Phoenix, Arizona. From the outside, it is virtually indistinguishable from the original, and as far as anyone knows this is the first time this airplane has ever been built in replica. A number of originals still exist, but this is the only replica.

Congratulations to the people who created this beautiful machine. I would love to see it fly, though at the present time that doesn’t look likely.

The entire gallery can be seen here.
