ALBATROS C.XV


  • When the German forces retreated from the Baltic in 1919 they left behind a number of aircraft and remains of aircraft. Among these was an Albatros C.XV (original serial no. 7818/18), the fuselage of which was described as being beyond repair.
  • Although a relatively modern aircraft for the time, its condition must truly have been poor because the Latvians rebuilt many badly damaged aircraft and flew them for many years thereafter.
