An excellent World War I aviation relic, a 2" x 2"square of doped fabric from the outer covering of a Fokker Albatross D.Va, flown by the Imperial German Air Service. The relic is reddish-brown in color, and is mounted to a matted informative sheet with a lithograph of the aircraft, identifying its origin as airframe no. 7161/17 of Jasta 46, one of only two survivors. This particular aircraft is held by the National Air and Space Museum, and this relic was removed from the plane during restoration. The D.Va was flown by several notable aces, including Ernst Udet, while other versions of the Albatros were flown by aces such as Paul Baumer and Manfred von Richthofen. Very good.
