Форум Breguet's Aircraft Challenge
This machine was built by the Gothaer Waggonfabrik AG, Abteilung Flugzeugbaur, Gotha in 1913. This four-bay (Vierstielig) rigger-nightmare machine was designed in 1913 by one of the designers of Gotha, Dipl.-Ing. Bruno Buchner. Most - or all - of our contestants saw a three-bay machine in it.
The span of the machine was 20 meter, with the lower wing being constructed "loose" from the fuselage. Power was provided by an Argus As II of 120 hp, driving a two bladed propeller.
Obviously the machine was in use as a trainer (Schuldoppeldecker) for the German Marine, looking at the uniforms.
