It is clearly a mix of both Fokker D.II (four) and D.III (two), with the D.III closest to the camera. The two D.II in the background seems to be flanked by a Halberstadt fighter. An extremely interesting photo by the way.

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Fokker D.II

Hello Stig,


You're completely corrrect and as you say it is also clear!


Can you read the serial on the D.III in the cente at all, either third from the left or right?

Clint

Well Clint

My guesses before have not been very successful, so I think I pass this time...

Seems you just quote me....
But at least I am going to do many more mistakes before my life is over!

Stig,


Well, I'm concerned that the olympics may be cancelled due to the corona virus. I had believed that I had serious medal hopes in the competetive cumulative error event.

Clint

To be honest I think I see a digit 1 in front which would thus make it 1524/16 (or even 1504/16, but I also think it is a digit 2 and not a 0)

Cheers
Stig
