a modeller friend asked me to help with the identifikation of the following Fokker D VII. All he knews about is that this picture was taken on the B÷blingen Airfield.
Here a larger version: Fokker B÷blingen
In my personal view this picture was taken in middle of the summer 1918, as the cowling is partially removed and there seems to be an additional cooling louvre for the ammunition.
The crosses are non-standard. I am not sure completely, but maybe they are painted over Eiserne Kreuze, as the Fokker seems to be a early version.
Any opinions? Please note also the markings of the Fokker in the background. Does anybody has an idea concerning the Jasta?
Many thanks in advance.
Edit: Pilot's name is Heinrich Schmid.
Honestly, I am in doubt about the B÷blingen airfield. Tents on a home airfield..?
