World War 1 German Pilot

Flieger vor dem Aufstieg zu einem Erkundigungsflug.

(Flier before the rise of a reconnaissance flight.)

The Fokker M.5 was an unarmed single-seat monoplane aircraft designed and built by Anthony Fokker in 1913. It served as a light reconnaissance aircraft with the German army at the outbreak of World War I and was the basis for the first successful fighter aircraft in German service, the Fokker E.I.
