Product Details

This is the pilot who taught the Red Baron how to fight in the air… Boelcke is widely considered one of the most influential fighter pilots of the early years of air combat.

He developed many of the initial rules of air fighting utilized by both sides during the 1914-18 war.

Oswald Boelcke (19 May 1891 – 28 October 1916) was a German flying ace of the First World War and one of the most influential patrol leaders and tacticians of the early years of air combat. Boelcke is considered the father of the German fighter air force, as well as the "Father of Air Fighting Tactics"; he was the first to formalize rules of air fighting, which he presented as the Dicta Boelcke. While he promulgated rules for the individual pilot, his main concern was the use of formation fighting rather than single effort.

Germany's premier ace, Manfred von Richthofen (The Red Baron), had been taught by Boelcke and continued to idolize his late mentor long after he had surpassed Boelcke's tally of victories.

He was killed in 1916 after winning some 40 victories. Our figure shows him wearing his black leather flying jacket and carrying a celebratory bottle of champagne.

Scale 1:30 / 60mm
