One of the two machines actually exhibited at Prague was the " L.59/60," which is produced in two types, the " 59" being a single-seater with five-cylinder Siemens radial aircooled engine, while the type " 60 " is similar in general appearance and dimensions, but has accommodation for one passenger. The engine of this type is a 7-cylinder Siemens radial air-cooled. The machine shown was a two-seater,  i.e.. the type " L.60," of all-wood construction. The two seats are staggered in relation to one another, the pilot's being on the port side and nearest the engine, where his view is very good in a forward direction. The " L.60 " is a monoplane of the low-wing type, and in order tc facilitate transport the wing is built in three sections, of which the centresection  remains in place on the fuselage, while the two end sections are removable. The undercarriage is in the form of two " trousered " legs, attached to the centre-section of the wings in order to give a wide wheel track. Each leg is enclosed in a large fairing, not unlike the Aachen glider seen at Itford in 1922. The engine is a 7-cylinder Siemens radial developing 75-80 h.p. The main dimensions of the Albatros " L.60 " are : Length o.a., 5-40 m. (17 ft. 8 ins.) ;  wing span, 10-30 m. (33 ft. 10 ins.) ; wing area, 10 sq. m.  (107-6 sq. ft). The weight of the machine empty is 369 kgs.  (812 lbs.) ; pilot and passenger, 150 kgs. (330 lbs.) ; petrol and oil, 81 kgs. (178 lbs.) ; total loaded weight, 600 kgs.  (1,320 lbs.). Power loading, 16-5 lbs.,'h.p.; wing loading,  12-3 lbs./sq. ft. The maximum speed is given as 165 km. h.  (102-5 m.p.h.l. and the climb to 1,000 m. (3,300 ft.! occupies 8 minutes. No figures relating to the landing speed are available, but, in view of the high wing loading, this must be fairly high, although a high-lift wing section is used.
