Silent film of Albatros production for all of you WnW fans.

Youtube has another neat film short done in Germany during the Great War. Showing some very involved manufacture of Albatros aircraft…from wood stock selection to final finish.

  1. Fantastic Stephen – great find!
    The attachment of the wings – showing the whole upperwing – so light – resting only on the cabane struts was quite something!
    Great work.

  2. Stephen, thank you for sharing that. Working in manufacturing/aircraft industry, I find that stuff very interesting. I’ve always been curious how those people withstood the fumes of the paints/dopes used without protection. As David mentioned, I too found the wing assembly sequence quite interesting, specifically the top wing being assembled first. Again, thanks!

  3. Thanks Stephen. The hand-craftsmanship is simply amazing. Thanks for sharing this.
