|Paper model of Albatros B.I.|
Design and development
The B.I was a two-seat biplane of conventional configuration that seated the observer and the pilot in separate cockpits in tandem. The wings were originally of three-bay design, but were later changed to a two-bay, unstaggered configuration. A floatplane version was developed as the Albatros W.I.
The B.Is were withdrawn from front line service in 1915 but some examples served as trainers for the remainder of the war.
- The Polish Air Force operated this type postwar.
