FT MM DR1 Triplane Lt Friedrich Paul Kempf
This skin depicts the aircraft (DRI 213/17) flown by Lieutenant der Reserve Friedrich Paul Kempf. Kempf only got 4 victories so you won’t find much information on him. He is primarily remembered because he had an elaborate paint scheme with the moto “Kennscht mi noch?” on his middle wing, pictures of which are widely known. His comrades remembered Kempf as being an extremely amiable and communicative person. Whenever he would run into an old comrade he hasn’t seen for months he would walk up to him, tap him on the shoulder and say: “Hello, I’m Fritz Kempf, we know each other from…, kennscht mi noch?” (Do you still remember me?) He did this all the time, it was a funny habit he had. He did this so much his comrades made a joke of it and asked him if he would say this to the enemy too, especially when he is in a hot dogfight. So he decided to choose this sentence as his personal motto. It is in a Bavarian (technically Swabian) dialect “Kennscht mi noch?” (“Do you remember me?”) Since the name “Kempf” is on the top wing, a translation of “Do you know who I am now?” also makes sense. Kempf is also one of the few flight leaders to survive both World Wars. He spent WW2 working for Messerschmitt. He died in the 1960’s. Skins include paper Spandau machine guns to complete the look.
