Fokker E.III wing area
Forgive my incursion to this topic please!
I would use E.III right wing panel drawing as a reference.
After careful examination i found right wing panel area to be 7.5 square meter (+/-0.5%). I have good reasons to believe the left wing panel area to be the same. So, Fokker E.III wing area including section cut by the fuselage (1.28 square meter) should be 16.3 square meter, or 175 square feet. Values reported elsewhere (i do not have authentic source) are quite below 175 sq.ft.
Any comments will be appreciated!
