This replica was built by the Great War Flying Museum using the same plans as the replicas built for the ‘Blue Max‘ movie. Originally it was painted all white as ‘5125/18’ but this was changed to represent the D.VII from Hptm Rudolf Berthold. In 2003 it was used in the movie ‘The Aviator’ and painted all red to represent a D.VII that was used in the ‘Hell’s Angels’ movie.

In 2007 the D.VII crashed and was seriously damaged. In 2018 the restoration completed and it is now painted as the aircraft ‘5424/18‘ from Lt. Kraut of Jasta 63.
It is registered as C-GWWI.
