Incident Reports

Date: January 29, 1922
Personnel: Bernhards Petersons
Aircraft Involved: Rumpler C.I #6
Location: Krustpils
Details:
  • The aircraft was crashed badly. While it is reported that it was written off after this event, Rumpler #6 continues to appear on the active roster (and participate in the 1924 Aviation Festival at Spilve), so either the aircraft was repaired or else the #6 serial number was passed on to another Rumpler.



Wreckage of Rumpler #6. Note - this may be
the wreckage from an earlier event, or else stored until the summer - this is clearly not a winter crash.
