A Rumpler model ?

Wait until SincoTC gets here - he'll bag them all !

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.

dook 21st Oct 2019 20:27

Rumpler C-VIII maybe.

Posts crossed.

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

It might therefore be an AEG.

nvubu 21st Oct 2019 20:38

Definitely not a Rumpler.
Manufacturer founded in 1911.

nvubu 21st Oct 2019 20:43

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.

Might well be an AGO.

nvubu 21st Oct 2019 20:56

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.


nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 11:55

Rocket powered?

dook 22nd Oct 2019 12:10

Piston engine pusher prop.

"lifting body".

dook 22nd Oct 2019 13:09

nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 13:19

nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 13:40

Thank you, and here's the next one.


dook 22nd Oct 2019 13:54

I thought it was a Sikorsky but it isn't.

Onwards wearing out my keyboard....

nvubu 22nd Oct 2019 14:15

You are correct, it isn't a Sikorsky.

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

Only a later enlarged model. That one wasn't.
