Photo LVG Eindecker

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a photo of the LVG E3 at:


https://www.ebay.de/itm/Fliegerschul...oAAOSwpexfKrid


The seller states that the machine is shown at Döberitz. Not sure whether this is the case or not as Jack Herris states on P.10 of LVG Aircraft of WWI Vol.1 that "the machines did not meet the needs of the pre-war German army."



Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo LVG Eindecker

Well Clint

Speculation again, but if you look at the reverse side of this post card it says Berlin Döberitz - Oberhof in Thür.

Just in case the producer is trying to tell us something, which just might be or indicate the crew are on a flight from Döberitz to Oberhof in Thüringen.
If that is what he is trying to say, I agree he would have been better off being a bit more explicit, but unfortunately this is all we got....

I don't think it was unusual for neither civilians to be allowed into military airfields nor military persons to fly (test?) civil aircraft from military facilities.

Just a theory anyway...

Cheers
Stig
