L.V.G. C-VI No. 4682/18 wood 
and fabric tip of right aileron

This is the wood and fabric tip from the right aileron of an L.V.G C-VI.  Note that the fabric piece on the right has a wood stiffener inserted for the purpose of taking this picture, but the actual wood is on the left. This is the aircraft which is being restored by Memorial Flight for Musee de l'air et de space at Le Bourget, Paris.  Position 1 refers to its location.  Other position locations refer to another item in this collection.


The original ailerons of the LVG in the Brussels Army Museum are shown below.  Notice the way that the outer tip sweeps upwards.
