The National Air & Space Museum opened in 1976, one year before I took this slide. The Wright Flyer was suspended in the entrance atrium along with the Spirit of St. Louis, the Bell X-1, and the North American X-15. More recently, the Flyer had its own display gallery.

Two days before the end of WWI, a lost German pilot landed this Fokker D.VII behind allied lines near Verdun. Sent to the USA as a war prize, it was eventually added to the Smithsonian's collection. The aircraft was restored in 1970 in the original markings of pilot Heinz von Beaulieu-Marconnay who landed it over fifty years earlier.

On display at the National Air and Space Museum. The Albatros series suffered from wing failures in prolonged dives. However, it remained a frontline fighter and produced a number of German aces, including Manfred von Richthofen, who scored three-quarters of his 80 victories with the Albatros. This is a late war build that served with Jasta 46 that was formed at Graudenz. It was damaged in combat and was not repaired, eventually finding its way to the USA and was acquired by the Smithsonian.
