Hi Troops:
Does anyone know the source for the belief that Werner Voss' Fokker Tri-plane (F1-103/17) had a leRhone engine instead of a German Oberursel??  I simply have a hard time believing that Anthony Fokker would power his latest and greatest sent to one of Germany's top pilots with a salvaged French engine.
