Ltn. August Raben, CO of Jasta 18, Möntingen (Montoy – Flanville now), October 1918
The colouring of Jasta 18 aircraft was modified following the designation of August Raben as its commander on March 14th, 1918.
Raben previously commanded Jasta 11. Initially, the aircraft had a red nose while the remaining upper and lower surfaces were dark
blue. The change involved repainting the upper and side surfaces of the front of the aircraft, including the upper surfaces of the wings,
in red. The rear of the aircraft, including the tail surfaces, were white. The sides of the fuselage were adorned with a black or white
bird symbolizing the commander‘s name, which translates to ‚Raven‘.
