Hannover Cl.V

Knut Erik Hagen sent in these images. They were taken at the Norsk Teknisk Museum.

Norwegian built Hannover Cl.V. Fourteen aircraft were built at the Army Air Arm Workshop at Kjeller in 1923/4. Powered by a 185hp BMW engine they were employed as light scouts, but the grade of plywood did not stand up against Norwegian climate and they were replaced by Fokker CVe aircraft. They seem to follow the German original rather closely, and do not have the standard Scarf mount as other Norwegian aircraft of the period. The color scheme is typical of Norwegian Army Air Arm aircraft between the wars, using paint of British origin or similar domestic products.

Knut visits the museum again...

Knut adds:
Hauk was the name of Norwegian built Hannover Cl.V used in the twenties. Aircraft seem to contain a lot of German made parts.
