Otto Jindra



* 18.03.1886, Chlumec - Pilařov near Trebon
+ 02.05.1932, Prague




One of the best aerial fighters to the austro-Hungarian air force in the early war period . the world. war was the [Otto Jindra. This man is, however, interesting to us, besides its undoubted other merits, especially the fact that he was the most successful war pilot of Czech nationality.
It is logical that, compared to legionnaires were soldiers fighting faithfully "for the emperor of the lord and his family" outside the main area of public interest. While e.g. Jan Masaryk (which certainly cannot be stated that would not be a Czech patriot), son of the future first president of czechoslovakia, professor Tomáš Garrique Masaryk, as an officer in the austro-Hungarian army fought on the Italian front and even led so ably, that he was for his activity awarded.


Even Otto Jindra was going to fulfil your military oath (in the military oath of the austro-Hungarian monarchy, after all the austrian emperors have spoken also as about the king of Czech), which he composed in the year 1905, when, after the termination of the grammar school at the age of 19 years he joined the army. Because it since his youth was attracted by the rapidly developing technical fields, he began to study in the cadet school of artillery in Vienna. After successful completion of tests was in the rank of lieutenant assigned to the main artillery regiment. Later still passed the higher odds for the mountain artillery, and was transferred to the main artillery regiment.


In 1908 was for the outstanding service awarded the Jubilee military cross and four years later promoted to lieutenant. At that time it represented Jindra prototype of a professional officer of the monarchy: catholic, speaking as fluently as English, and German, but also passable Italian, Polish and French, great controlling your weapon, and good at sports. In his spare time engaged in equestrian, swimming, skiing, cycling and motorismem. He was also interested in photography (which he later in the war suit) and a lot of free time he occupied one of his somewhat eccentric hobby, namely the management of locomotives.


When I broke out Even. the world. the war he commanded The. Jindra battery, and it soon became aide to the commander of the 14. the mountain artillery regiment, with whom also went to the Russian front. He participated in the campaign in Galicia, including two battles of Lviv and was here awarded the bronze Military meritorious medals, known as the bronze An olympic champion.


However, very soon filed a request for a transfer to the air force, perhaps for his penchant for modern technology, perhaps for its reluctance to further lugging heavy works haličským mud. And so already 10. 9. 1914 was Oberleutnant Harry translated to 1. air company (Fliegerkompanie 1 or Flik 1). He held the function of an air observer. Flik 1 initially operated mostly with two-seater observation aircraft Albatros B. I, supplied initially from Germany, and later manufactured in the austrian license. In 1916, the armament of the complement known the austrian Hansa-Brandenburg B. I and C. I.


Even though the air fights were at first very rarely, a very unpleasant became the Russian anti-aircraft barrage. Know that Jindra, as 14. 11. 1914 was his Albatros B. Even, under whose management sat Leutnant Max Hesse, shot down by machine gun fire one of the Russian cavalry units. The pilot is heavily damaged, the machine managed to lead up to an emergency landing, from which fortunately the two austrian pilots got out with only a few light scratches. After inspection of the airplane found that the repair and re-takeoff of their machines is completely eliminated, because in Albatross counted in the 180 bullet holes. Dismantled, therefore, important instruments and the aircraft set on fire. After a few days of an exhausting run, they managed to cross the front line and get to their own units.


21. 1. 1915 from combat flight returned former commander of Flik 1, Oberleutnant Josef Smetana (later it turned out that he was shot down, wounded and captured). His superiors basically immediately named his successor lieutenant Otto Jindru. It was a somewhat surprising decision, also because Harry was only an observer, but the commander of Flik used to be as a rule, also a pilot.
Jindra, however the trust is fully deserved. Not only in the violent Russian fire taking quality aerial photographs of the battlefield, but above all has gained considerable fame on both sides of the front, when the radio control of artillery fire. Through entrapment works very accurate, no doubt thanks to his many years of service in artillery and also the fact that a technical officer Flik was still not very known lieutenant in the reserve Benno Fiala (the future of the third most successful austrian fighter pilot with 28 kills), one of the nejzapálenějších the pioneers of radio control of artillery fire.


The russians soon realized the danger for them is that in the sky buzzing the aircraft, after which discovery began always shortly artillery shells to pluck their position. Soon, therefore, began to take place first, while improvised, but a fierce air skirmishes. Armament consisted initially only the personal weapons of the crew. At the beginning of the war because the austro-Hungarian air force certainly didn't belong among the largest in Europe. With only 39 bojeschopnými aircraft, 85 pilots and 12 observers. Existing air armament was made up of 36 guns Schwarzlose, divided between fourteen Fliks. In January 1915, however, only six of these weapons were mounted in aircraft. On arming at the time there was no pressure, the Russian adversary in a war he entered with 244 aircraft, only a fraction of them, however, was combat ready and had endured a challenging field operation. Russia had only 150 pilots spaced throughout the length of the queue. The enemy air force, therefore, so far did not constitute a serious threat and a bulky and heavy machine guns so unnecessarily burdening the aircraft and interfere with crew. Pilots so they prefer self-charging guns Mauser C/96 the caliber of 7, 63 mm and observers recurrent military rifles Mannlicher 95 caliber 8 mm.


Thus armed, took to the air 13. 6. 1915 the crew of the Albatross. B. Even in the composition of the pilot sergeant Max Libano, observer lieutenant commander Otto Jindra for routine exploratory flight. Routine, however, was suddenly gone when they were over the front attacked by a pair of Russian two-seat Morane-Saulnier Parasol. Harry immediately opened fire from the rifles and his pilot shot from a gun. The result of the unequal fight was almost unbelievable. One Russian pilot made an emergency landing behind Russian lines unharmed with only a slightly damaged plane, but who were shot observer on board. The second Russian aeroplan heavily crashed during an attempted emergency landing in the forest also in the Russian hinterland and the two Russian pilots were seriously injured. According to the then regulations Jindra was even Libano attributed after two sestřelech. The decision was quite logical, because the pilot and observer during air combat must work together and one without the other would win he couldn't.


The increasingly frequent appearance of enemy aircraft forced the arming of the aircraft on-board machine guns. An impromptu assembly soon replaced installation on the associated circle. Later he got a machine gun and a pilot. At first out of sync above the top of the wing, then even synchronized for shooting the propeller.


Ten weeks after his double victory, 27. August 1915, Jindra involved in yet another battle. His Albatros B. This time piloted by Johann Mattl and again they were attacked by a pair of Russian Parasolů. It is not known if he had Harry still only hand weapons, or whether it already has an on-board machine gun. The first Russian soon disgusted by This accurate fire, so the fight soon gave up and flew back to their lines. The second Russian plane with a badly shot-pilot crashed while attempting an emergency landing.
After these three sestřelech followed by even number recognition. Jindra was awarded the the Military if the merit cross 3. class with swords and war decorations, the prussian Iron cross II. class and 1. September, 1915, he was Otto Jindra was promoted to the rank of captain.


In the fall of 1915 began Hauptmann Jindra pilot training directly at your units on the aircraft Albatros B. I and Brandenburg B. Even with a double drive. After completion of the prescribed curriculum was on 11. 12. 1915 Jindra appointed field pilot and thirteen days later you could have the breast pin i Pilot badge. It was not quite normal and indicate that a quite exceptional pilot and martial qualities of the Otto Jindra. The pilot badge is neuděloval immediately after completion of the training, but was reserved only actually combat deployed airmen after a fly off a certain number of combat actions.


Hauptmann Jindra already at that time belonged among the best and most recognized commander of the Fliks and was given as a model for the performance of this function. Moreover, it was a man with natural authority, inspiring respect, however, quite kind to his subordinates, and endowed with a great sense of humor. Flik 1 under his command, he gained still greater reputation, and soon he was considered the best ever of the austro-Hungarian air unit on the Russian front. At that time were not yet created a dedicated fighter, bomber and reconnaissance Flicks. Every Flik he had the character of universal forces and so even Flik 1 was conducting reconnaissance, artillery observation, the prosecution and the bombing, all with different types of two-seat aircraft.


Two weeks after having received the pilot badge is 5. 1. 1916, with Harry once again involved in a dogfight. As a newly minted pilot flew then on a biplane Brandenburg B.I, when he was attacked by enemy aircraft and Jindra was for the second time in his career shot down. One enemy bullet lightly wounded, the other punctured the tank. Harry, however, managed to successfully crash land.


29. 3. 1916 Jindra at Albatros B.I again fought with the Russian Parasolem. The austrian pilot and observer notched after it is destroyed, because the Russian machine damaged their fire crashed while attempting an emergency landing. It was Jindrův the fourth confirmed kill.


Fighter ace, according to the western criteria has become about eleven days later, 9. April 1916. After a fight with with the Russian dvouplošníkem probably the type of Lebed both austrian airmen noticed, how the stricken machine broke while attempting an emergency landing.


Three days later, 12. in April 1916, he performed Jindra act, which his name yelled on both sides of the front. From the intelligence services learned that the Chotina has come alone to the Russian tsar Nikolai II., to here performed a festive show. The show was in full swing when the above scene came Albatros B.I, whose control lever clutching Otto Jindra and on the seat of the observer was sitting a then unknown lieutenant Godwin Brumowski. In the next few seconds on the ground all hell broke loose. Jindra with Brumowskim toppled among the soldiers of the seven small bombs and their explosion caused enormous upheaval and confusion. Walking shapes is completely collapsed and the soldiers fled in all directions. To the impudent rayder, however, immediately went four Parasoly, designed to protect the czar's person. Harry then began to furiously maneuver and Brumowski fired from a machine gun on the attackers. Soon two Parasoly shattered while attempting an emergency landing near Chotina, and the austrian Albatros managed to disappear!


Tsar Nikolai II. he was furious, but the present Russian army commander, the famous general Alexei And. Brusilov, as a professional soldier uttered enemy recognition when their attack described as "extremely bold and brave act austrijáckých ljotčiků".


Another success Jindra has reached up to 26. September 1916. Flew back on the new Brandenburg C.I, and was suddenly attacked by a pair of Russian fighter Nieuportů. One enemy fighter plane had to make an emergency landing and Harry then earned his eighth confirmed victory. Later one Russian captured aviator this kill confirmed and further testified, that the austrian bullet at the time that the Russian pilot could shoot through the neck and even though he brought his Nieuport to a smooth emergency landing, shortly after he bled to death.


His last victory achieved Jindra 18. December 1916. He attacked with his Hansa-Brandenburg C.Even on a Russian observation balloon. Jindrův an observer on the balloon fired 500 rounds from his machine gun, while probably also hit the observer. He found in the basket of the balloon that crashed, the death.


This ninth recognised the victory of Otto Jindra became the most successful airman austro-Hungarian air force. At the same time became the most successful airman on the eastern front. During the following two years, which will still take a war, will surpass the Jindrových nine kills in just 15 other airmen of the austro-Hungarian air force. Except for one but they all fly on a small one-man fighter, however, in which Harry never fought, and most of their victories obtained on the Italian front, where they're just a greater concentration of aircraft gave more chances to score. Only one of them, Adolf Heyrowsky, get your 12 kills on dvousedadlovce, but much later. But now, at the end of the year 1916, with current equipment and existing aircraft, was Otto Jindra was an absolute star of the austro-Hungarian air force. It was awarded a variety of honors. To their existing honours received two more silver Military meritorious medal with swords on the war ribbon, the Order of the Iron crown 3. class with war decorations and swords, Charles military cross and Cross Mariánů. In 1918 he was again awarded the Military if the merit cross 3. class with swords and war decoration and thus became one of only 18 officers of the austro-Hungarian air force, who this honor received twice.


In the following year Harry practically had no opportunity to air combat and therefore a victory. On the contrary, he was alone 13. September 1917 the third time shot down. It happened when his 220. combat flight, but Harry fortunately your Brandenburg C.Also, a badly damaged anti-aircraft fire, brought to a smooth emergency landing and himself escaped without injury.
Shortly after fighting on the eastern front almost faded away. The bolshevik coup caused that Russia negotiated a ceasefire and end the fighting. This allowed the Central powers to send a large part of their units on a different battlefield. So was Otto Jindra translated to the Italian front, where he was for his command of the quality, combat experience and practice of bombing actions appointed to a high position the commander of the bomber group known as Fliegergruppe G. The unit consisted of five air rot Flik 101G - 105G and her armament consisted of in addition to the classic two-seat single-engine aeroplanes series C and twin airbus, for example Gotha G.IV.


Jindra function of the assumed 12. April, 1918, however, already 4. 5. he suffered severe injuries in a crash during a night combat flight. Further details are not known, but the injury was so severe that Jindru knocked out of the combat activities until the end of the war. Got him, along with the fall of the monarchy, the emergence of the independent Czechoslovak republic and abdikací the emperor, in a sanatorium in Prague-Podolí.


In November 1918, Harry signed up to the czechoslovak military air force, where he served in the rank of captain. In 1919 he commanded the expedition almost hundreds of aviation specialists (pilots and members of ground staff, mostly from the ranks of the former austro-Hungarian air force) to France, where they were trained on modern air technology. Specifically, Jindra passed the fighter at the exchange rate on the aircraft Fallout.


In that time, he was Jindra known as one of the nejzapálenějších builders and organizers of the young czechoslovak air force. His further military career, however, ended the health problems resulting from the war hardships and injuries. 1. 3. 1921 was for medical reasons, discharged from the service. Even in civilian clothes was one of the most important aviation officials in the Czechoslovak republic. He ran a private airline, was one of the leading figures of the czechoslovak sport aviation, he organized the first aerosalóny and airline competition in CZECHOSLOVAKIA. To a large extent brought about by the building of its own, independent of the czechoslovak aviation industry.


He did everything to make the world introduced to Czechoslovakia as air power. His tireless work for the flowering of czechoslovak aviation, however, ended abruptly. The consequences of the war hardships and the injuries Otto Jindra 2. may 1932 in Prague, died. He was only 46 years old..

Major československého letectva Otta Jindra

Činnost českého pilota Otty Jindry po skončení Velké války.

Dne 2. listopadu 1918 Hauptmann Otto Jindra přísahal vojenskou věrnost nově vzniklé Československé republice. Z důvodu rekonvalescence po letecké nehodě, kterou utrpěl 4. května 1918 se v době převratu nacházel ve vojenské nemocnici v Podolí v Praze, z které je propuštěn 10. prosince 1918. Do Československé armády si oficiálně podal přihlášku 7. prosince 1918. V den propuštění z vojenské nemocnice 10. prosince 1918 je ustanoven do funkce zástupce velitele Leteckého sboru (v hodnosti kapitána), kterému velí kapitán Jindřich Kostrba. Dnem 18. ledna 1919 je jmenován československým polním pilotem. Dne 20. února 1918 byl jmenován nový velitel Leteckého sboru kapitán Karel Hupner. Kapitán Otto Jindra funkci zástupce velitele Leteckého sboru zastával až do 29. března 1919.

V roce 1919 došlo podstatnému přezbrojení Československého vojenského letectva na francouzskou leteckou techniku.
Proto je počátkem dubna 1919 posláno 39 pilotů a leteckých pozorovatelů a 52 mechaniků posláno do Francie na přeškolení. Velitelem této skupiny se stal kapitán Otto Jindra.
Po přeškolení jednotlivých pilotů v několika různých pilotních školách (podle zaměření, například stíhači, piloti vícemístných letadel….) se vlakem spolu s části letecké techniky skupina vrátila 20. června 1919 do republiky.
Kapitán Otto Jindra měl při jednom zkušebním letu leteckou nehodu. Proto se on vrací až v červenci 1919. (Není jasné kdy k návratu došlo, buď 12. nebo 26. července 1919.)

Dne 28. srpna 1919 byl jmenován velitelem Leteckého sboru. Letecký sbor byl podřízen veliteli Československého vzduchoplavectva francouzskému majoru J.J.A. Bordages. Dnem 1. října je jmenován majorem letectva.
Ke dni 31. října 1919 došlo k zrušení Leteckého sboru a název Československé vzduchoplavectvo byl nahrazen názvem Československé vojenské letectvo. Major Otto Jindra se stal zástupcem velitele Československého vojenského letectva. Z této funkce byl odvolán 5. září 1920. Nadále však pracuje na Velitelství Československého vojenského letectva.
Ke dni 1. března 1921 je major Otto Jindra ze zdravotních důvodů poslán do výslužby. Pravděpodobně byl propuštěn nejen ze zdravotních důvodů po prodělaných leteckých havárií, ale protože byl trnem v oku nejen francouzským vojenským přidělencům, ale i navrátivším legionářům. Byl to typický příklad „rakušáka“ jenž musel opustit armádu, z důvodu jenž se stal nepohodlným pro nové zřízení republiky. (Po celou dobu války bojoval za Rakousko-Uhersko).

Jeho dalším životem ho samozřejmě provázelo letectví dále. V roce 1921 se stal členem redakční rady časopisu Letectví (dnes Letectví a Kosmonautika). Dále byl předsedou Československého aviatického klubu.
Dne 17. prosince 1921 v Praze se oženil se slečnou Jaroslavou Bobkovu narozenou 7. dubna 1897. Manželství zůstalo bezdětné.

Už od roku 1920 společně s pilotem a podnikatelem Julius Arigi podnikal v oblasti soukromé letecké přepravy. Jejich společná firma Ikarus-společnost s.r.o. pro tuzemskou a zahraniční leteckou dopravu byla ustanovena 25. záři 1920 v Praze. (Julius Arigi firmu Ikarus založil už dříve, ale 25. září 1920 byla přeměněna na společnost s.r.o.). V roce 1922 se firma Ikarus spojil s podobnou firmou Falco a vznikla Československé letecké a.s., ta na konci roku 1923 zanikla. Dále se pravděpodobně věnoval obchodní činnosti v leteckém průmyslu.
Mimo jiné organizoval letecké výstavy – aerosalóny.
Major Otto Jindra ve výslužbě zemřel v Praze dne 2. května 1932 na mozkovou mrtvici.

 - Hansa-Brandenburg C.I výrobní číslo 67.51, Flik 1 ruská fronta. Další ze strojů,  na  nichž létal Hptm. Otto Jindra (9 sestřelů). Stroj je netypicky vyzbrojen dvěma pevnými kulomety Schwarzlose (jeden na horním křídle v pouzdře VK II, druhý na levém boku pilotní kabiny - zbraň střílela mírně šikmo, aby nezasáhla vrtuli. Třetí zbraň mohly být nesena na oběžném kruhu v prostoru pozorovatele. Stroj celý v barvě materiálu, na boku jsou zajímavé stopy po odstranění výsostného označení.
