 Flight Journal: Tracking the Pfalz
Pfalz started with the Roland D.L, which was officially designated a Pfalz D.I. since Pfalz built it.
Had Pfalz started with the Roland D.II, it still would have been a Pfalz D.L, since the D number reflected the sequence of procurement from a particular builder and not of an established D model.
To reduce the size of the load, the Pfalz's one-piece upper wing and that of an accompanying SPAD VII were sawed in two.

 PfalzD12
The Pfalz firm, based in the quasi- independent state of Bavaria, attempted to compete with firms like the Albatros and Fokker concerns who enjoyed special access to the Prussian-dominated imperial government in Berlin.
One advantage the Pfalz had over other machines was its endurance, able to loiter on patrol almost an hour longer than the Fokker.
While an excellent machine, the Pfalz D-XII's main enemy was the propaganda issued forth from the Air Ministry that the Fokker D-VII was the epitome of combat aircraft, and thus pilots all craved to receive it.

 Tom's Modelworks' Pfalz D.VIII
The fuselage also formed the basis of the Pfalz Dr.I triplane competitor to the Fokker Dr.I. The result was a fast-climbing fighter powered by the counter-rotating Siemens-Halske Sh.III rotary, which also powered the better-known Siemens-Schuckert D.III and D.IV.
The aircraft were designed under the direction of Pfalz chief engineer Rudolph Gehringer and used the traditional Pfalz wrapped veneer fuselage construction.
He used his Pfalz D.VIII in conjunction with his better-known Fokker D.VII, putting the high-altitude performance of the Pfalz to good use during the air battles of the Meuse-Argonne offensive at the end of the war in September and October, 1918.

The Pfalz Eindeckers were always overshadowed by Fokker built monoplanes, for that matter Pfalz Flugzeugwerke was always overshadowed by other aircraft manufacturers.
The Pfalz Flugzeugwarke began life producing the Otto pusher biplanes under license from the Otto Company and later acquired the rights to produce Morane Saulnier Type H and L fighters; the French tail is an obvious sign of its ancestry as opposed to the Fokkers comma shaped tail.
Pfalz E types were used mostly by Bavarian units.

 Liselotte von der Pfalz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Elisabeth Charlotte von der Pfalz (Charlotte Elizabeth, Duchesse d'Orléans), (May 27, 1652 in Heidelberg - 9 October or December 8 1722 in St. Cloud near Paris), a princess of the electoral family of the Rhenish Palatinate, became Duchess of Orleans and sister-in-law of Louis XIV of France.

Liselotte's letters — mostly written to her father's sister, Sophia, Electress of Hanover (who had brought her up after her father's divorce), and to her half-sister, Countess Luise zu Pfalz (1661 - 1733) — about the costumes and morals at the French court survive.

The Pfalz D.III had its guns buried inside the fuselage and following this criticism the aeroplane was modified and the guns were placed atop the fuselage directly in front of the cockpit.
By April 1918, 433 Pfalz D.IIIas were in service at the front, about a quarter of the total number of aeroplanes at the front.

 Review: Toko 1/72-scale Pfalz D.XII   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Pfalz D-XII was a sturdy, two-bay biplane fighter similar in conception to the French SPADs.
Two-bay wings provided the additional bracing needed for swift diving attacks, the preferred tactic of German Jagdstaffeln during 1917-18, and reassured pilots who were leery of the structural weaknesses of the preceding generation of Alabatros and Pfalz scouts.
While the Pfalz D-XII has been offered in both vacuum-formed and short-run injection-molded form in years past, this model is the best 1/72 scale Pfalz D-XII yet.

Her drastic style and critical assessments, but also her genuine empathy for persons she loved make for pure reading pleasure to this day and moreover are an inexhaustible resource for the study of her time.

 Palatinate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In England, it is also used to describe a shade of purple, coming from the colours of the County palatine of County Durham.
More particularly, the Palatinate (German die Pfalz) usually refers to one of two areas in Germany, each formerly ruled by a count palatine.
When Germans speak about "the Palatinate" they are usually referring to the Rhenish Palatinate (Rheinpfalz, sometimes called the "Lower Palatinate" or Niederpfalz).

Located on the left bank of the Rhine River north of the border with France, the Pfalz region is one of the warmest and driest agricultural areas in Germany.
The word Pfalz derives from the Latin Palatium, for the region was noted for its wine during the Roman Empire, and it was named for the Palantine Hills in Rome, the first residence of Roman Emperors.
The area, as a whole, is shadowed by a rolling mountain chain, the Haardt, which is a geological extension of the Vosges to the south of France.

 The Aerodrome Forum - Albatros D.V.a, or Pfalz D.III.a?
Regarding the Pfalz D.III.a, this also had a bad reputation, but I don't feel that this was deserved; certainly they were not as fast as the Alb.
Pfalz changed more than the location of the machine guns.
It must be remembered that if the Albatros and the Pfalz (specially) came to be regarded as "easy meat" by Allied airmen it whas mainly because they were assigned to greeen pilots as newer machines became available.

Because this development follows the pattern of the Tuscan wine revolution of the 1980s and because the Pfalz is also blessed with a warm, dry climate, the region has been christened "Germany's Tuscany." So far few people outside Germany have discovered the area, and wine prices remain reasonable.
His small oval glasses give him the look of a university professor, and he is a patient teacher when it comes to explaining how the Pfalz became a producer of world-class dry whites and a serious challenger in the field of red wines.
The densely forested mountains form a barrier that shelters the Pfalz vineyards (most of which lie on the benchlands immediately to their west) from cool, wet air streams from the Atlantic.
