Schutte-Lanz D VI
  After the projected D V, which was not built, the next Schutte-Lanz original production was the D VI, an interesting parasol monoplane. The parallel struts which braced the wings were covered for most of their length with an airfoil section fairing to form an additional lifting surface. Unfortunately the aircraft crashed on its first flight on 29th May 1918 and was not rebuilt. Engine, 160 h.p. Mercedes D III.

SCHUTTE-LANZ D VI Germany

  A unique single-seat fighter created by the Luftfahrzeugbau Schutte-Lanz in the spring of 1918 was the D VI, which was fundamentally a parasol monoplane, but featured additional lifting surface in the form of an aerofoil-section fairing between the parallel struts bracing the outer wing panels to the base of the fuselage. Powered by a 160 hp Mercedes D III engine, the D VI was flown for the first time on 29 May 1918, but crashed and was not rebuilt.

Span, 35 ft 5 1/5 in (10,80 m).
Length, 21 ft 4 1/3 in (6,51 m).
