Albatri
« on: October 30, 2007, 08:44:39 PM »
Hello Mates.

Maybe a stupid question but i wonder what these metal bars looking like a ladder are at the side of this B.I . Have seen it now on various photos but until now i never thought about it.



cheers

Not understand all but if you think on the metal plates under the cockpit this is early air coolant. I have somewhere article where is presented a number of method of cooling on early aircrafts.

Yep. That i meant. I also found a picture in my Alb C.III Datafile where it is stated in caption Alb. C.III 4184/15 is unusual in that it is fitted with side radiators for the Mercedes engine having the same device at the side. Thanks PM Grosz and thanks you  :-cool
