Photo Comment

This CL.II served as the personal mount of the Commanding General of the German Air Service (Luftstreitkräfte) during WWI, General Gerth von Hoeppner. It then became part of the post-WWI German Aviation Collection only to be subsequently discovered in Poland post-1945. It was transferred to Krakow in 1963 to undergo extensive restoration and is now part of the superb WWI collection of the Polish Aviation Museum.
