As your blogmeister has confessed in the past, he really digs the birds of WWI but doesn't know all that much about them, compared to other things with wings. As such, we can provide you with little in the way of concrete info concerning this photo.

But here's what we see, or... what we think we see: the main subject is an Albatros D.-Sumthin' which has what appears to be (mostly) over-painted stripes on the rear fuselage and tail. Also, it appears that an older style fuselage cross may have been over-painted and replaced with a later style cross. Finally, call us crazy... but is that a roundel on the wing of this crate's neighbor? If so, this suggests the possibility that one of these is a captured machine.
