For all Skinners & Albatros Fans

Recommended Posts

"THE VINTAGE AVIATOR" have added lots of detailed photos of their Albatros D.Va - a joy for skinners, modellers & Albatros fans.




Here I saw the first close-on photo of the lift-ring handle near the tailplane.

It was jacketed with leather; they used the handle to lift up and carry the tailplane, when the aircraft was moved.

If not in use, this ring was fixated by a clasp.


Also yet unknown to me was that metal step attached to the nose, which was used to get at the engine.

I'm not sure how I missed this Olham. The Albatros has such beautiful lines that I can just look at her all day.
