BLERIOT XI-2

IN SERVICE: 1912 -1913 –ex Turkish.
TYPE: SCOUT
NATIONAL MARKINGS:   see profile
BATTLE ORDER / ACTION: SEDES Air Base [THESSALONIKI] –BALKAN WARS

 

Turkish Bleriots were in a brick-linen color, so we used (me and Fotis) the term Brick Beige. I speculate that this color can be represented as a mix of Linen and Red brown or Tan

    This plane crashed during a reconaisance mission in April 4th 1913. The pilot, leutenant Emmanouel Argyropoulos and the observer Konstantinos Manos were both killed in the crash.
    It is said that the Turkish airplanes were painted in brick-red colour, so I suppose that Bleriot XI was painted in this colour too, as it was captured in the liberation of Thessaloniki.

    I think you’re right. I also suppose that national markings on tail and wings may be in the same way that the markings of Nieuport IVG are. Right?
