6. The Albatros Taube
  Is of the type used in the Lake Constance Race in 1913. Its main planes are of the usual Taube type, being of Zanonia form. The body is of particularly good stream line form, having no sharp angles in its outline. Pilot's and passenger's seats are arranged in tandem as in the land machines, and just in front of the passenger is mounted a 100 h.p. Mercedes engine. The tail planes are similar to those fitted on the Albatros biplanes, and consist of a horizontal stabilising plane, to which is hinged the divided elevator, and of vertical fins above and below the body, to which is hinged the rudder. As is the case with the majority of German seaplanes, this machine is amphibious, being fitted with a combined land and water chassis. The two wheels, which are placed between the floats, can be raised clear of the water and lowered again at will by means of a lever in the passenger's cockpit. The two floats, which are of the single stepped type, are built up of two skins of mahogany over an ash framework and are carried on a structure of streamlined steel tubes.

6. The Albatros Taube.
A.Imrie - German Naval Air Service /Arms & Armour/
Putzig, near Danzig, was selected as the site for the German naval Flugversuchstation (Flight Experimental Station) since it possessed a wide flat area of grassland, providing a natural land aerodrome, and a coastal area protected from rough wave conditions by the Hela peninsula, giving an excellent seaplane harbour - thus meeting both of the requirements for the operation of amphibious aircraft. The machines seen here in 1913 are the Albatros monoplane, designed by Ernst Heinkel and flown with success by Helmuth Hirth in the Bodensee Competition, and the Avro (D12) bought from Britain.
