The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model.

Albatros-Flugzeugwerke was based in Johannisthal, Berlin, where it was founded by Walter Huth and Otto Wiener in 1909. It produced some of the most capable fighter aircraft of World War I, notably the Albatros D.III and Albatros D.V. The company continued to operate until 1931, when it was merged into Focke-Wulf.
