WW1 aircraft to be restored at the AWM

Thumper 4 March 2008 4

French aviation experts are in Canberra to help the Australian War Memorial restore two rare World War I planes. The German Albatros DVa and Pfalz DXII are being ‘clothed’ with new camouflage fabric as part of their restoration.

Both aircraft are historically significant given that the Albatros is one of only two left in the world and the Pfalz is one of only four surviving Pfalz DXII’s in the world.

ABC online article is here.

That’s awesome. I love that we have places like the War Memorial right here in Canberra. I can’t wait till they’re ready for the public to view.

It’ll be nice if they put them on display again after their refurbishment, as they haven’t been on display for a number of years now.

Another two treasures that we are very lucky to have.

Thank you Charles Bean! 🙂

Read that on the ABC website yesterday. I am incredibly interested, after reading all those biggles books as a kid.
