They were taken at the Norsk Teknisk Museum.
Norwegian built Hannover Cl.V. Fourteen aircraft were built at the Army Air
Arm Workshop at Kjeller in 1923/4. Powered by a 185hp BMW engine they were employed
as light scouts, but the grade of plywood did not stand up against Norwegian
climate and they were replaced by Fokker CVe aircraft. They seem to follow the
German original rather closely, and do not have the standard Scarf mount as
other Norwegian aircraft of the period. The color scheme is typical of Norwegian
Army Air Arm aircraft between the wars, using paint of British origin or similar
CLVtop - note cutouts and position of fuel tank. Seat for pilot and "hammock"
for observer is visible.

Hauk was the name of Norwegian built Hannover Cl.V used in the twenties.
Aircraft seem to contain a lot of German made parts.
