I also luv to see the Old Warbirds Fly. However, I wonder How many Albatros D-5 s are flyable in the World Kermit Weeks has one ( and a Mossie the lucky %$#@!&^) . Rinebeck , Airdrome in N.Y., U S A has one, and one in New Zealand. There was one near the East Coast of the U.S. But haven't heard about that one for years, of course there are mock ups in numerous museum s but they dont count.

"The Vintage Aviator" in New Zealand have two (your videos No. 2 and 3).

 

If you like to see other kites of "Vintage Aviator" in flight, you should search through all the HAFU VIDEOS;

they always make the films of their aircraft. See here:

Na, according to that Vid. The a/c was being shipped off to a guy or a corporation named " Kermit Weeks" . I found a second Vid with the Kermit Weeks name owning a Mosquito a/c decked out in Sgn Colors. Its now a static display in Wisconsin so guess the Albatros will be going or has gone there too.
