Hi All,

I've benn sent this image and asked if anyone has anything on it; where, why, who, when, what, etc.

Over to you ...!

Apologies, this is my first photo up-load since Photo (Crap) Bucket went pear-shaped, so I'm learning what to use and how..!
Best Regards,

Oh, and knowing the colour scheme would be a real bonus too...!

Thanks,

Hi Brian,

I have found this special bird in one of my books, the "Hansa-Brandenburg Aircraft of WW1, Volume 3 Monoplane Seaplanes".
At page 8 is a photo of this maschine taking off, with text: "This poor quality photo shows a W.29 that was flown by Gerhaf Hubrich for Dansk Luf Rederi in Denmark postwar. The stripes where dark red and white".

Hope this helps you...

I also have a question: do you have some pictures of Junkers J-11 floatplane? Anything further than the internet pictures would help. Floats seem to be Hansa-Brandenburg wooden floats?

Kind Regards,
Rene
