Re: Photo Albatros D.Va

To be honest Clint, this looks very much like a D.III to me

Slabsided fuselage (oval with the D.V) and the rather "cut" fin/rudder vs the more rounded one on the D.V. Also the upper wing is (or at least seems to be) higher put than the D.V.

No help with Jasta colours I'm afraid.

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Albatros D.Va

Hi Stig,


Clearly further attention needed on my part to the rudder in future. In all honesty I actually saw rounded fuselage rather than slab sided D.III hence thread title. This is in fact becoming a bit of a habit for me on here with D.III/D.Va identities.


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Albatros D.Va

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a photo of an Albatros D.Va of Jasta Boelcke at:


https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-6-Flieg...QAAOSwKThe1sFn


Does anyone recognise the markings and have a serial number for the machine or a name for the pilot?


Regards,


Clint
