Rumpler Taube replica

In Germany an enthousiastic builder has managed to build a stunning (flying) replica of the Rumpler Taube in 8 years hard work. You can find the picture of the machine in flight here.

Probably there are somewhere on the internet a lot of other pictures, but I have not found them yet.

Wow!

And look how nicely that wing bends. Great photo, excellent aircraft.

Observing,

That's not a Rumpler,it's an Etrich Taube D2,the example built in Fürstenwalde.

You are absolutely right, it is an Etrich Taube . I misquoted this one.

Text accompanying the photo...(German)

Zweite Etrich-Taube in Fürstenwalde (06.06.2004)

Nach 8 Jahren Bauzeit steht die Etrich-Taube des Neustädters Harald Lohmann kurz vor ihrer Vollendung.In diesem Sommer soll der Erstflug und die Abnahme durch das LBA erfolgen. Damit wäre es die zweite fliegende Etrich-Taube in Deutschland. Es existieren noch eine Taube in Österreich und eine in den USA. Wie die erste deutsche Taube entsteht sie zwar auch in Fürstenwalde bei Berlin, allerdings begannen die Vorarbeiten im Keller des Rentners in Wiener Neustadt - mit tatkräftiger Unterstützung seiner ebenso rüstigen Frau Elsa. Die Etrich-Taube wurde 1910 von dem Österreicher Igo Etrich entwickelt. Angetrieben wurde sie durch einen 60 PS Motor von Ferdinand Porsche. Bis zum ersten Weltkrieg wurden etwa 200 Stück gebaut.

The 2nd Taube mentioned in the above paragraph crashed 2005,the pilot died.
Lohmann built another Taube,anybody know where it is currently?

The Etrich Type F/Walter Minor from Wiener Neustadt Museum seems to be on sale,it flew only very briefly before it was grounded due to a rough landing.
