O.Thetford, P.Gray - German Aircraft of the First World War /Putnam/
A fine shot of the rarely pictured two seat, pusher-engined Friedrichshafen FF37, or C I to give it its military designation. Of early 1916 vintage, the experimental FF37's general layout appears to have been influenced by that of the Royal Aircraft Factory's F.E.2, following the British practice of seating the gunner in the nose, forward of the pilot. The FF37 was destined never to progress beyond the prototype stage.
