Photographer's Remark

Of the 541 of this 1937 shipboard reconnaissance design built, 12 were flown from Varna by the Bulgarian Navy during WWII. This one was almost destroyed in a post-war purge against items of Nazi origin but was hidden away, and is now one of only three complete examples in the world, the other two being in the US
