    The aircraft featured here is a Rohrbach Roland I, Reg. No. D-1280.

    Two facts can reduce the clip's current date range. Firstly, the Rohrbach's first flight didn't take place until 1926. Secondly, Luft Hansa wasn't formed until 1926.

    The date range can therefore be reduced to 1926-29.
