Developed from the G.II of 1913, the G.III was a two-seat sesquiplane powered by a 59.6kW Le Rhone, Gnome or Anzani engine mounted in the nose of the short crew nacelle. Originally operated by French squadrons as reconnaissance aircraft over the Western Front and then in less dangerous theatres of war, the G.III subsequently became a trainer, serving also with the British, Belgian, Italian and American forces.

Sometimes looks can be deceiving. It's hard to believe from it's appearance, but this was actually a very good airplane: sturdy, stable, easy to fly and efficient. However like most pre-WW-I designs, it suffered from a lack of speed, maneuverability and poor crew placement (the pilot was seated behind the observer, who had a limited view and field of fire). Nevertheless, it was a successful reconnaissance plane early in WW-I, as well as a good training airplane throughout the war.

I like the lower picture of the 60 hp G 2 here. However what I would really like is a set of detailed plans and drawings of the aircraft as we (South Canterbury Aviation Heritage Centre, a voluntary New Zealand group) would like very much to build a museum replica of the machine. Can you help or give us any leads please?
