The Aeroconservancy Museum Original Artifacts from 1914-1918
LVG C.VI Aileron Fabric
This is a piece of printed, camouflage 4-color upper surface lozenge fabric from the left aileron of an L.V.G. C.VI. Note the un-pigmented rib tape. The black paint on the right-hand side is the edge of the balkan cross and alongside it is the white border of the cross which is barely discernible. This piece measures 49 in. x 21 in. or 124 cm x 53 cm. Additional photos show (a) the fabric before it was cleaned; this cleaning removed some of the original, cracked dope, (b) the location of the fabric on the left aileron.
