Dornier Do-H Falke / Dornier-Wright WP-1
The Dornier Do H Falke was a German single-seat fighter, designed by Claude Dornier and built by Dornier Flugzeugwerke.
One Seefalke was shipped to the United States of America by the Wright Aeronautical Company, who fitted it with a licence-built Wright-Hisso H-3 engine.
It was evaluated by the United States Navy with the designation Wright WP-1.
It performed well, but the Navy considered the monoplane fighter too advanced for its needs.
