Lohner B.I “Pfeil”: Flechas Austriacas sobre el Rif.

The Pfeilflieger (arrow-flier) was an Austria-Hungarian military recon biplane designed and built before the start of WW1. Conventional for its era, the Pfeil in various up-powered versions was employed by its home country initially in anger and later as trainers.

Five B.I were acquired by the Spanish in 1913 and they served in an Aeronáutica Militar squadron in the then Spanish Protectorate in Morocco. One of them here displaying the type’s commendable climb performance over Tetuán, 1913.
