Karl Krieger

<...>
  In 1914, Karl Krieger presented a so-called parasol-monoplane, as the high wing aeroplanes were called.
<...>
  In 1915/1916 the company in Johannisthal was closed down. Krieger had meanwhile moved to Leipzig and was employed by the Germania-Flugzeugwerke as a company pilot/test pilot. He was killed in a crash on August 8, 1918, when a Rumpler he was testing crashed.


Krieger

  Built in 1915, the Karl Krieger parasol monoplane two-seater was made of tubular steel. Span was 14.3 m, length about 9 m, and wing area about 30 m2. The wings could be moved fore and aft on the fuselage to adjust the center of gravity as needed.
  Only one aircraft is thought to have been built; although the numeral '5' was part of the lettering on the fuselage; perhaps it was Karl Krieger's 5th design. The aircraft remained unarmed.
