LVG on the meadow

This photo has a crashed LVG biplane on display. It gives a good view on the motor and the area around it but im not sure which LVG type it is. The crash was at Hazavant Ferme. It could possibly be a machine of the Bavarian FFA 7b which was based in this area in early 1916. (Thanks to Reinhard Kastner for this info).

Nieuport 10

A Nieuport 10 that looks like it had crash-landed or forced landed. You can still see the mud on the propeller.

German Two-Seaters in Focus: Part III

A good three quarter rear view of Alb. C.III 140/16. It was form the production serial batch 100-199/16. As the worthy Peter M. Grosz stated in the Windsock Alb.C.III Datafile, machines from this batch could be either an Albatros or an OAW build. Crew and unit as well as the location depicted here are unknown to me. At last i have to thank Mr. Dan San Abbott who helped me clarify the aircraft type last summer.

German Two-Seaters in focus: Part II

Hello Mates.

Last time we had the LVG C.II machine. Here we have another two seater machine with a large group of airmen? posing in front of it. First thing would be to identify the model type.

My first guess would be another Alb. C.III
Since ive seen versions with the chimney to the left and others to the right. I guess it depends on the motor and factory specific differences to distinguish.

Any comments are appreciated.

Welcome to my blog

Hello Mates.

I decided to create this blog to share with you interesting postcards or photos that I might acquire on ebay or other trading and auction places.

Hope you'll enjoy it. You are very welcome to leave comments and discuss details of photos with me.

To start with this postcard, it was used in 1916 and depicts a captured french Caudron G3 that was forced to land on 02-December-1915 in northern France and dismantled by the Germans.

Best regards
