Although the Model T looks like it could be of the right vintage for that era, doesn't the single wing plane look a little 40ish; Huh R.D.?

That is an open cockpit plane. Also the hood style is early, the early 1920s.

I can't find a matching picture, but this aeroplane has all the earmarks of a 1920's German Junkers design. Cantilever wing, seemingly all metal construction, upright inline water cooled engine.

Add the fact that this picture was taken in the middle east and that Germany had a large presence in that area at that time, I'm putting my money on a Junkers product.

The T is probably fairly old as it has an incorrect replacement top.

Well, I never have claimed to be an authority on planes or much else, but all the pictures of planes that I have seen from the 20's were of biplane design. I didn't look close enough to see if the engine was air or water cooled.

Are they hooking up a rope between the Model T and airplane?

Here's a pretty good match to the one shown above.

Junkers D.I , the first all-metal, cantilevered monoplane fighter to enter service. It was very fast too, experiments in November 1918 with a BMW IIIa ...


Junkers

The top picture seems to show a radiator just mounted on top of the prop with no fairing. This would indicate water cooled. The lower picture also seems to have radiator and is fully cowled.
If the lower one is 1918 and the upper 1927 then I doubt they are from the same manufacturer. I mean why would they fully cowl the radiator in 1918 and have it open in 1927.

Could they have needed better cooling in the heat of the middle east?
