Photo Comment

This wooden aircraft type first flew in 1934 and was used by Republican Forces in Spain and in the USSR until the start of WW II. This example was captured by German troops in Ukraine in 1941 and was conveyed to Le Bourget for study by German soldiers. It remains at Le Bourget as part of the Musee de l'Air
