Is this the only surviving Russian built aircraft of WW1?
Are there any photos of the cockpit?
Can you tell me anything about the history of this particular aircraft?
This is an extremely fascinating aircraft to those with interest in WW1.

This Anatra Anasal was used in WWI by the Imprial Russian AF, some were captured by the Bolcheviqs, and is a miracle that you can have in your museum.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
