Thanks, Kilian. :-wave
I wonder what is that on photo no.4 : four engine three deck hydroplane. Could this "F" on the tail be sign that it is French??? although I believe it could likely be German or USA (maybe). :-think :-think :-think
I wonder, I never saw this airplane before.
Hey fellows: SOS, help, hilfe, aiuto, upomoc...!!!! :))

Hi mates,

After taking a look at the pictures, this is my list:

1- Vultee V1

2- Potez series 62/65

3 Tupolev ANT Maxim Gorki

4- Latecoere 521, I believe it was christened "Lt. de Vaiseau Paris" when impressed into the Aeronavale.

5- Not a clue  :-red

6- An early Sikorski or Kamov helicopter?

7- Dewoitine D-510, may be a prototype or preseries machine.

8- Fairey Fox, used by the belgian A.F. in W.W. II. I'd really like that MPM or some company like that to release a model kit of the Fox Family. They're some of the prettiest biplanes ever.

9- Not a clue, but I guess it may be the lower gun position on a TB-1?  Even it could be the one on the Junkers R-42? :-think

10- Not a single clue

11- It says Graf Zeppelin, could be?

Well, I guess that's all, mates.

Take care,

Javier

I think it is Caudron Biplane from 1912, like on this photo (compare it with Your first photo - it is same tipe of aircraft, if not the same). Caoudron G3 has lower wing shorter and thus some diagonal struts, which this one on photos doesn't.
Also it is the same aircraft on third photo (all first three photos are from yhe same place) :) :-wave

On the photo 5, could this two man be Gaston(up,working on engine) and Rene Caudron (down, handing him a tool)?
I blew up heads and added here another photo with them, also near the engine (Rene is on the left, Gaston right). I blew up their heads from this photo too. I believe this are same two people, so the aircraft could be one of early Caudrons, although the position of helix (behind an engine :-eek) is very strange, so, I am not sure.
 :) :-wave

When I look at the "ski" between the wheels, a rounded fin and rudder, I would say it is Avro 504 K. :-think

Hi,

I think it's a He 111 and its shadow resulting of a very low sun on the horizon. It should be interesting to know the time when this photo was shot. I think in the evening...

Cheers,
Jicehem
