Flight, August 1923
GOTHENBURG International Aero Exhibition 1923
A LATE arrival on the stand of Baumer Aero G.M.B.H. was a Dietrich-Gobiet two-seater, with rotary monosoupape engine. The machine is, it is stated, intended as a sporting type, and is known as
the type D.P.1. Both in the shape of the fuselage, tail, etc., and in the matter of construction, the D.P.1 is very reminiscent of some of the German Fokkers. The fuselage is of welded steel tube construction, and the inter-plane struts, undercarriage struts, etc., are streamline steel tubes. A good deal of attention has been paid to ease of dismantling and erecting, but otherwise the machine is of no particular interest. The general appearance is shown in the accompanying photograph, and the quick-release mounting of the one-piece top plane is illustrated in a sketch.
