Flettner FL 282 Kolibri



In 1940, Hitler's Kriegsmarine (German Navy) made a request for a naval helicopter for operate from its units. Derivative from the Flettner FL 265, the FL 282 deliveries begun in 1942 and the next year, 20 prototypes were in service.

The model demonstrate to be very effective so plans for 1000 units where approved but being a Navy aircraft had little claim on production facilities and they were finally aborted due allied bombs to the BMW and Flettner factories.

32 preproduction aircraft were delivered, and three were taken home as war booty by Russia and the United States.

I believe both photos shown were taken at Freeman Field, Seymour, Indiana. Hundreds of captured enemy aircraft were sent there for evaluation, reconstruction and forwarding on to other airfields and museums. www.IndianaMilitary.org - Select Freeman AAF and Foreign Aircraft.
