It can be interesting to compare this aircraft with the airworthy machine at Shuttleworth. A third LVG C.VI survivor was found in Belgium some time ago and went to the Musée de L`Air in Paris.

The photos show various parts of the LVG, notably the machinegun ring, cockpit decking, Wing centre-section assembly, undercarriage assembly, exhaust stack, etc. Note the Taube engine in some of the photos.

Mike adds: Like the Soesterburg museum in NL, this is another museum that lets you get pretty close to the airplanes without much trouble.
