Hello,


Currently for sale on ebay at:

Re: Photo Fokker E Types

Hello,


A photo of a Fokker E.III E.226/16 flown by Oswald Boelcke is currently available on ebay at:


https://www.ebay.de/itm/161-Foto-BEL...wAAOSwYY1eVsiO


Since initially posting this link I've received information offboard suggesting the serial is more likely E.245/16 and that the aircraft very possibly did not belong to Boelcke, but may come from FFA 9b.






Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Fokker E Types

Hello,


Today on ebay there is a photo of a Fokker E.IV captioned as flown by a Leutnant Baldanus at:


https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-Flugzeu...8AAOSwV7ZecJQI


I don't think the seller has the name correct which would appear to begin
Bäldar, pehaps Bäldarius? Has anyone any thoughts on the pilots name with a possible view to identifying the unit?


Edit. As a thought Hartmuth Baldamus?, though the first a appears to have a umlaut and it looks like a dot over the i before the S.



Regards,


Clint

Hi Clint

I think what looks like two dots (very much off center above the initial a) actually is some smudging on the paper.

Lt Baldamus both look and sound pretty OK to me.

But hey, Clint, make a facial identity of the man. With such a sharp and top pixel sharpness, it must be a piece of cake.... (Ooops, tongue stuck in my cheek this time....)

Cheers
Stig

Hi Stig,


I believe I'll actually have the piece of cake rather than attempt to resolve the image.Sounds more pleasurable.And plausible.



I tend to concur and even having identified Baldamus, at the end of the day without something to narrow down the date KEK Vouziers,KEK AOK 3 and Jasta 9 all remain possibilities for the unit. So no progress there.


Also I note having checked I don't have a single Fokker serial where Hartmuth Baldamus is known to be the pilot.


Might I also recommend some form of alcohol to losen your tongue from its cheek.



Regards,


Clint
