OHTM Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Owls Head, Maine - The Owls Head Transportation Museum is pleased to announce the launch of a campaign on February 20, 2017, to overhaul and restore their full-scale, flying 1917 Fokker Dr.I reproduction, the aircraft made famous by flying ace Manfred von Richthofen, better known as the Red Baron. It is the centennial of World War I, and to commemorate this somber occasion, the Museum is embarking on a mission to return the Red Baron to the skies through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter.

“This tri-plane is an integral part of our World War I collection, and we hate to see it grounded for the 100-year anniversary of the Great War,” said Kevin Bedford, acting director at the Museum. “With no original examples of this aircraft in existence, it is especially important that we get the Dr.1 back into the air so that we can use it as a teaching tool to provide a living history experience for our visitors.”

In 2014, it was discovered that the Dr.I was in need of considerable repair and maintenance. From new fabric to cover the wooden wings and body to repairs to the intricate and delicate wooden structures and a complete engine overhaul, this airplane requires total restoration. Through Kickstarter, the Museum will attempt to raise the $50,000 needed to purchase a new engine, replace or repair the plane’s instruments, and repair and recover the wooden frame.

In telling the story of the infamous flying ace, the Owls Head Transportation Museum brings visitors face-to-face with the technologies that fueled the early 20th Century and teaches younger generations about why those technologies are still significant today. Once completed, the Dr.I will enlighten, entertain, and educate our visitors through first-hand interaction with the plane and will join the rest of the Museum’s WWI aircraft in the skies at their summer events.

The Owls Head Transportation Museum has a long history of restoring, repairing and even constructing aircraft in its collection. 2016 saw the reemergence of their 1917 Curtiss JN-4D, better known as the Jenny, after being grounded for several years. Now, the staff and volunteers of the Museum want the Fokker Dr.1 to be next.

Visit the Owls Head Transportation Museum’s restoration of the Fokker Dr.I on Kickstarter to learn more about the project and pledge your support today!
