Hi pmdec

Interesting fact about the french propellers. Thanks

The first two flying boats that the Danish Marine acquired in 1913 were french "Donnet-Leveque. A guy called H.P Christensen modified the two airplanes to make them more stabile, and later manufactured 8 flying boats of his own design but based on the French models. The new models were called F.B which stands for Flying boat bi-plan.

The planes were constructed at Orlogsværftet in Copenhagen, which he left in 1918, the same year my propeller was manufactured. So he was probably overseeing the construction
