Fokker E.II/35 from Feldflieger Abteilung 14 preparing to land at an airfield on the Eastern Front. The E.II was built in parallel with the E.I and whether an airframe became an E.I or E.II depended on the availability of engines. In total, Fokker production figures state that 49 E.IIs were built and 45 of these had been delivered to the Western Front Fliegertruppe by December 1915. These figures mean that E.II 35/15 was one of the very few E.IIs that saw action on the Eastern Front. In the distant background (right side) is a possible Rumpler aircraft
