Linke-Hoffmann R.II
Unit: unknown
Serial: R.55

The Linke-Hoffmann R.II was a large four-engined bomber. This giant was a three times normal scale version of a typical two-seater; the engines were buried in the fuselage and geared together to drive the massive 6,9 metre (diameter) Garuda propeller. Until today, the R.II was the largest single propeller aircraft ever build and flown. Only the R.55 was flown January 1919; a second, serial R.56, was under construction at the war's end and completed after the war, but never flown. It was said to be an eerie, weird experience to fly in it - the propeller was geared down to 545 rpm.
