The L.V.G. C.VI was an artillery spotter and reconnaissance aircraft used in the closing stages of W.W.I. First flown in 1917 the C.VI was a development of the earlier C.V and some 1,100 were produced. They were used after the war by Poland in the Russo-Polish war and were exported to Finland, Russia, Sweden and others in fact some were still flying in Lithuania in 1940. There are three surviving C.VI:one at the R.A.F. Museum at Hendon, one at the Brussels Air Museum and one at the Musee de l'Aire et de l'Espace in Paris.
