    "Another version starts at 01:15:00" - when I watched it, the second version started at 00:46.

    The airliner Prince Wilhelm is beside at 01:03 is a Rohrbach Ro VIII Roland (Rohrbach Roland is clearly seen on the side).

    Thanks jamied. The 01:15:00 sounds about right. On the tape, the film begins at 01:14:13.

    Thanks for identifying the airliner.
