/ Dornier Do-E
The Dornier Do-E was a small German flying boat of 1924, designed for reconnaissance missions.
Only four are known to have been completed.
Two aircraft with Rolls-Royce Eagle IX engines, known as Do-E-Is, were exported to Japan and Chile.
Two more were built as the Do-E-II, with Gnome-Rhone Jupiter air-cooled engines.
The Do-E-I was distinguished from the Wal and the Do E II by having a wing covered with metal panels, instead of fabric.
