/ Fokker D.VIII
The Fokker E.V was a German parasol-monoplane fighter aircraft designed and built by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke.
The E.V was the last Fokker design to become operational with the Luftstreitkräfte, entering service in the last months of World War I.
After several fatal accidents due to wing failures, the aircraft was modified and redesignated Fokker D.VIII.
Dubbed the Flying Razor by Allied pilots, the D.VIII had the distinction of scoring the last aerial victory of the war.
