Re: Photo Albatros B.II

Thanks, just did.

Wish the photos had been bigger and scanned a bit better though, but a couple
were very interesting!!

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Albatros B.II

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a copy of a photo of an Albatros B.1117 at:


https://www.ebay.de/itm/124877130461...8AAOSw7zZhLNNW


Although a copy this is an interesting photo for those interested in German WW.I aircraft serials (just me then!) as there is no reference to an Albatros B.1117 in any of the usual sources. Jack Herris has B.1117/14 listed as a LVG machine in the Aeronaut LVG Vol.1,so there is some possibility that the aircraft shown is B.1117/15. As the nearest batch is usually given as beginning with B.1121/15 a possibility exists that the batch of Albatros B.II concerned begins no later than B.1117/15 and may reach as far back as B.1100/15.


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Albatros B.II

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a photo of Albatros B.II (Bay) 273/16 or less likely B.II (Kon) 273/17



https://www.ebay.de/itm/145501416169...AAAOSwLkxlfGkX


A further Albatros B type named Eva is at


https://www.ebay.de/itm/296110065872...QAAOSwisllfDVQ


The seller has this as being at the Fokker factory at Schwerin


Is it though perhaps at a flying school as likely indicated by the following photo from the same seller with DFW C.V (LVG) 2160/17 'Nimrod' in the foreground,but also captioned as Fokker Schwerin


https://www.ebay.de/itm/296110052550...sAAOSwi-RlfDPx

Clint

Re: Photo Albatros B.II

Looks very much like B.II 273/16 to me Clint
The back side is tricky for me to read, but it looks like one person in the photo
was killed 27.10.1917 so the photo must have been taken before that date.

The next Albatros seems to me to say B.II 77 (and the rest covered by the tail).

Finally, did Fokker have any repair/overhaul facility in Schwerin? If yes did they only take on their
own types or other aircraft as well?

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Albatros B.II

Thanks Stig. I assumed that the first photo was B.273/16 as it has the older style radiator,whereas the Kondor built machines I've seen from 1917 don't have the old style radiator and the serials have the B of the serial in a style charecteristic of that company.Just covering my bases when contemplating the possibility of a Kondor built machine for B.273.


Also a helpful response for the second photo. Based on its appearence I was thinking probably B77*/14. The only photo I've seen in that range is of a B.I,so the fact that you are able to read the B.II shows it must be a different machine.


I don't have an answer as to whether Fokker had a repair facility at Schwerin.There was,as you'll know however a Fliegerbeobachterschule there.


Regards,


Clint

Not saying it is a fact Clint!
When blowing up the picture I think I can feel (well you know what I mean) what is visible
is a bit too thick to really say B.I and B.II (again) feels better.
I have been wrong too may times before, so no fact, just a feeling....

Cheers

Re: Photo Albatros B.II

Currently on ebay is a photo of an Albatros B.II with B2 on the Rudder. The style of marking is rather unusual.


https://www.ebay.de/itm/226152399071...Bk9SR7q67qLyYw

A registration for the Prinz Heinrich Flug perhaps?
