In August of 1917 the Austrian Crown Prince Otto von Hapsburg or more recently known as the Archduke Karl Albrecht visited to Jatsa 10 located at Marcke during a inspection of the new triplane.

A head on shot of Fokker F.I 103/17 with a great view of the face painted on the cowling believed to be from a Japanese kit symbol. Note the stool holding up the tail section.
A great side view of Fokker F.I 103/17 most likely taken at the same time as the photo above because of the same stool holding up the tail section.
A vary rare shot of one of the only parts left of Werner Voss Fokker F.I 103/17 after he was shot down on September 23, 1917. Shortly after the crashed the field were it laid had been heavily shelled and no other parts are known to have been recovered.
The only other remaining part of Fokker F.I 103/17.
As rumor has it, the IWM has the Voss rudder and this photo is believed to be it but there is no record of it at the IWM or any other photos that can prove this along with opening up the Yellow color marking controversy. The location of this rudder in the photo is not known. It is fair to mention that the Yellow rudder markings were used by other Jatsa's.
