The Last Albatross Reconnaissance Aircraft
This post brings the history of Albatross reconnaissance aircraft to its end. The war ended and so did the need for military aircraft. Luckily the Albatros C.XV was used in civilian aviation.
The Albatros C.XV was a German military reconnaissance aircraft developed during World War I. It was essentially a refinement of the C.XII put into production in 1918. The war ended before any examples became operational, however some found their way into civilian hands and flew as transport aircraft in peacetime under the factory designation L 47. Others saw service with the air forces of Russia, Turkey, and Latvia.
