The Fokker E.V was the last fighter type built by Antony Fokker during WWI. It was a plywood-covered, fully cantilevered parasol wing configuration. In July the first production planes were delivered to the Front. The performance was impressive and pilots nicknamed the plane the "Flying Razor". But after two flying accidents on August 16 and 19, when a wing failed in flight, the type was immediately grounded for investigation and production stopped. The wing structure was strengthened and the aircraft returned to the front in October as the "Fokker D.VIII". The letter D, which used only for biplanes, indicated that the new wing was twice as strong. But the D.VIII came too late, because the war was ending. Only one victory achieved by a pilot flying the E.V had been confirmed. 289 planes of this type were built in total and all were scrapped in accordance with conditions set forth in the Armistice.
