Hello folks!

A few minutes ago I saw (on TV) an early Albatros 2-seater flying over Berlin in connection with the ILA 2002 aircraft fair in Berlin.
8) *8) *8)

In this report it was said that the Albatros 2-seater is an original aircraft. Then I checked the WWW for further informations and found the following lines:

"Historische Fluggeräte als Zuschauermagnet

Die Präsentation von historischem Fluggerät gehört zu den besonderen Traditionen der ILA. Zur ILA2002 werden die legendären Jagdflugzeuge der Propeller-Ära erwartet, darunter Me-109, P-51 Mustang, F8F Bearcat, Skyraider und Hawker Hurricane. An die Pionierzeiten der Fliegerei erinnern so historisch bedeutsame Muster wie die Etrich Taube, der Farman Doppeldecker ODER DIE GERADE ERST WIEDERERSTANDENE ALBATROS B2. Die Ju-52 der Lufthansa Berlin Stiftung weist auf die Anfänge des Luftverkehrs hin, während die DC-3 das Andenken an die Rosinenbomber der Berliner Luftbrücke wach hält. Die weiteste Anreise zur ILA2002 hat der Fieseler Storch-Nachbau des Australiers Nestor Slepcev, der diese Maschine als Kit anbietet. Eine weitere Weltpremiere auf der ILA2002 ist eine zivile Variante des deutsch/französischen Alphajets, der auf der ILA vom Flying-Bull-Team präsentiert wird."

It still is not quite clear for me if the Albatros is an original aircaft (completely "old" or only some main parts of it) or is it a replica aircraft with a modern engine? Will it be a museum aircraft or where will I have the possibility to make photos of this nice machine?

Any ideas ...

I had heard that there was an original B.II in the Museum für Verkehr und Technik. Whether this is the same aircraft or not?

In irgend einem Magazin habe ich vor einiger Zeit über den Wiederaufbau (?) einer Albatros B.II und ihre Flugeigenschaften gelesen. Es mag Jet & Prop, eine der letzten Flugzeug-Ausgaben oder die Ostberliner Flieger-Revue gewesen sein.

It's a replica, folks! It shows austrian markings and was built by a Verein near Berlin, like the Taube.
