D-576  Albatross L.58a                              (c/n 10006)


                                       Early registers indicate that this was a L.58a machine powered by a Rolls-Royce Eagle VIII engine
                                       as opposed to the earlier Maybach Mb.IVa powered version.  This L.58a, which could carry eight
                                       passengers was named 'Wolkensegler', and was delivered to Deutsche Aero-Lloyd AG.  It passed
                                       to Deutsche Luft Hansa in 1926.   The photo above is from the Gunther Ott collection.     
                                       D-576 crashed on 5 June 1928 at Essen, and was written off.
