generalderpanzertruppen is on a distinguished road
Flettner Fl 282 Kolibri

I read this post on another board, and wondered if anyone had seen or has any access to any photos of this -

"Flettner also demonstrated that the little craft could land on a ship, even in heavy seas. Naval leaders were impressed and, in 1940, ordered several dozen of the craft with the clear intention of mass-producing them. Allied bombing ended production efforts, but 24 of the aircraft still entered service, with a number of them being used for escort service, flying off the gun turrets of ships to spot submarines, and performing resupply missions even in poor weather conditions. "

Thanks to anyone who can help me out with some Kolibri naval photos!
