Re: Photo Farman

Hi Stig,


Just curious really about the bet my head saying, we of course have the same functional equivalent with the use of sticking my neck out, but then we too have a related cultural heritage.


Anyway about 1260, it was a number used for a french MF.11 I would think, I see from http://albindenis.free.fr/Site_escad...ete_Farman.htm 1259 and 1263 were in any event. Still, as you say french machines had the number on the tail, so not I would suppose a french machine operating in Italy, which at one stage crossed my mind as the number as you rightly say is on the body of the aircraft. I tend to agree with you not a SFA number.Hopefully more will emerge...


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Farman

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a photo of another Italian Farman MF.433 at:

According to Gentilli and Varriale I Reparti P.55 this aircraft served at one time with 2 Squadriglia.

Hi Stig,


True and still with a military serial, though I kind of wonder if it wasn't and exhibit or museum piece and not just metaphorically either...

Clint

Re: Photo Farman

Hi Stig,


What has somewhat surprised me is that the seller of the Fokker D.II photo is offering it for immediate sale for 25 euros and that it hasn't already gone. a relatively rare aircraft, quite a nice photo which shows the serial and of an aircraft from the ever popular German armed forces. Strange.But then you compare that to the Farman with the price asked and where you can't even see the serial, though it does have the unit marking. Bonkers.


Regards,


Clint
