Re: Flettner Fl-282 V6 Kolibri Hummingbird test by Kriegsmarine

This quite lovely film is in the NASM's collection and shows the Fl 282 V6 whilst being tested by EuLkdo 20 aboard the Drache.

All three pilots attached to the unit can be seen in this film:

0.20 - Claus von Winterfeld
3.42 - Max Schmid
4.46 - Hans Fuisting

Flettner's flight test mechanic, Xaver Schleicher was also attached to the unit during part of its brief existence and can be seen at 3.22.

The uploader incidentally is the guy behind the wonderful 1/18th scale model of the Fl 282 -
