Albatros Pre-War Aircraft

   The Antoinette was a primitive design, and later in 1910 Albatros built the Farman biplane under license as the F1; a longer-span variant was produced as the F2.
   In 1911 Albatros built the French-designed Sommer S1 single-seat pusher biplane, followed by the RS1, a shorter-span S1, for contests. The SZ1 followed; it was similar to the RS1 but had a 70 hp Gnome rotary and a nacelle for the pilot.

Passenger Carrying by Brunnhuber.

SIMON BRUNNHUBER, who has just been appointed instructor at the Military Aviation Ground at Doeberitz by the Prussian War Minister, accomplished a notable performance on the 24th ult. Using his German-built Sommer machine, he took up three passengers beside himself, and carried them for 2 1/2 kiloms., landing after a three minutes flight in splendid style.

Doings at Johannisthal.

ORVILLE WRIGHT was at the Johannisthal flying ground on the 6th inst, and made a flight of several circuits of the aerodrome at a height of 150 metres. On the following day Brunnhuber repeated his exploit of taking four passengers with him on his Farman machine for two circuits of the ground, while Capt. Engelhardt, on a new Wright biplane, made a cross-country flight at a height of 300 metres, passing over Glienicke, Schoenefeld, Eichwalde, Gruenau, to Aldershof and back.
It is a rather curious coincidence that two of the aviators at Johannisthal should have met with trouble through losing their propellers last week-end. On Saturday afternoon Brunnhuber was flying on his German-built Farman at a height of 50 metres when the propeller dropped off, but the aviator was able to land safely and without damage. Two days later Thelen was giving a passenger a trip on his Wright biplane when the starboard propeller fell off. The machine dropped suddenly from a height ot six metres to the ground and although Thelen himself was unhurt, the passenger was rather severely shaken up, while the machine was smashed.
Last week a deputation of Russian military officers paid a visit to the Johannisthal Flying Ground, where they were especially interested in the Albatross Works, which builds Farman biplanes in Germany. It is rumoured that the Russian Government intend to order a number of aeroplanes from this firm.

Flying Round Berlin.

   ON Monday Pietschker, accompanied by Lieut. Schwarz on an Albatross biplane, started from Johannisthal and making his way round the north of Berlin, flew to Potsdam. Proceeding on his way to the south of the German capital, he landed at Schulzendorf in order to visit a friend, and then steered his way back to Johannisthal via Telton and Templehof, having taken 1 hr. 40 mins. for the round trip.

This Albatros, essentially an F1 with extended-span wing, may have been an F2. On December 7,1910 pilot Brunnhuber flew an F2 with four passengers, a record at the time, and this photograph may have commemorated that event. Again with Albatros rudder markings, this F2 has a primitive nacelle and longer struts bracing the forward elevator. (Peter M. Bowers Collection/The Museum of Flight)

This Albatros had its upper wing span further extended for greater lift and the nacelle has improved form. The basic design was primitive and Albatros moved to tractor designs for its future development, eliminating the excessive drag of this pusher configuration. (Peter M.
