Name that Flying Machine

After the image of the Stanley 12-904 Bailey No. 4 9-3/4" Smooth Bench Plane - I'll start the thread.

Interesting .... On further research (i.e. searching for Rumpler) my source documents are showing it having the has the same model name as a Rumpler, but the side on view is different and the manufacturer named is different. There are a few aircraft in my source documents that say "similar to Rumpler but...."

So not a Rumpler.

Rumpler C-VIII maybe.

Posts crossed.

I don't think Rumplers had "names" - just a letter and number.

It might therefore be an AEG.

Definitely not a Rumpler.
Manufacturer founded in 1911.

Yes - Letter/number combination same as a Rumpler.

Not an AEG.

One of the founders of the company was the son of a famous inventor.

Yes - it is an AGO C.iv. When I looked up Rumpler, I found their C.iv - which threw me a bit.

I'd never heard of AGO until today, founder - Gustav Otto, son of Nikolaus Otto - the Otto engine.
Company closed by 1928, resurrected by the Nazis in 1933.

Your turn.

I used to belong to another site doing this sort of thing. Must dig out the reference sites again.

This was your AGO....

Good day all.

There have been some strange things built in the past.

This is one of them.

And intended to be filled with helium I believe, so really a dirigible.
