D-290  Rumpler C.I                                              (c/n unknown)


                                        This Rumpler is registered in the first series of German registrations (1919  - January 1920).
                                        Clearly then it did not fly with DLH and the badge on the rudder was probably painted on
                                        for an air show..  Judging by the aircraft in the background I would say the photo was taken
                                        in the late 20s or early 30s.   Gunther Ott, from whose collection this rare shot comes, identifies
                                        the craft as a Rumpler C.IV, although it was listed as a C.I in the register.
