An Albatros C.XV aircraft, civil registration D-109, piloted by a German pilot, in which Captain C. Mills AIF, Australian representative, flew from Berlin to Copenhagen. Taken a moment before the start from Johannisthal aerodrome, Berlin. Mills had been a prisoner of the Germans during the war.
The Albatros C.XV was essentially a refinement of the C.XII put into production in 1918. The war ended before any examples became operational, however some found their way into civilian hands and flew as transport aircraft in peacetime under the factory designation L 47. Others saw service with the air forces of Russia, Turkey, and Latvia.
Date July 1919
