Snow Bird was the name given to this Austro-Hungarian Fokker A.III (German
designation E.III) number 3.52, flown by Oberleutnant Ludwig Hautzmayer. This
aircraft was assigned to Fliegercompagnie 19 (Flik 19) at Haidenscafe airdrome
on the Isonzo Front in February 1916.
It served with this squadron until it was in a collision with another A.III
(3.44) in August 1916. Both pilots were attacking two Italian aircraft at the
time and were able to crash-land their aircraft without serious injury to
themselves. However, Snow Bird was reduced to Fokker fodder.
Overall, Snow Bird was credited with seven combat kills, five by Oberleutnant
Hautzmayer. Most of its service duty was spent in strafing maneuvers in
support of the Austro-Hungarian troops along the Italian Front,
The overall green was confirmed to aero historian Dr. Martin O'Connor by the
revered Austrian naval pilot Gottfried Banfield, who had flown several
Eindeckers in such paint schemes.
