Bleriot-SPAD VII C1
Unit: unknown
Serial: unknown

Pilot - Reinholds Celmins (Latvian native). It not known about this individual or the aircraft he flew.

It is known that the Russian Military Air Fleet used SPAD VII's from two sources: 43 Bleriot-manufactured SPAD VII's (however few a/c were SPAD-built), delivered to the Russian military on/after February 1917. 63 Russian Dux license-manufactured SPAD VII's; completed between August 1917 and February 1918.

The number on the rudder, S1443, is a notional number. It is a best guess given the poor quality of the source photograph. The main exemplar photograph does show a Bleriot-built SPAD VII with Celmins posing at the front of the aircraft. It need be noted that the Bleriot-manufactured SPAD VII's delivered to Russia were primarily in the S14XX to S15XX number range, though at least one was known to have carried the number of S338 (this a/c was SPAD-built). Russian Dux-built SPAD VII's were mostly in the S15XX.

Of interest to note are the following features of Celmins's Bleriot-built SPAD VII:
No camera trap door;
Recessed ventilation louvers;
Low set radiator cap;
Lack of lift straps;
Tail strut made of flattened steel tubes painted beige;
Closed radiator shutter adjustment hole;
Simplified exhaust pipes;
Tape-reinforced tail skid;
Use of an clair-type propeller vice a Chandlier-type propeller.
