Sad. Very sad. WAs that the last flyable He-111? I think there was only 1 in the world air-worthy.

As far as I know it was the last. I had the opportunity to crawl all over her and see her in flight a few years ago here in Vancouver.

Very sad. Condolences. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

just read this in my paper. sad, expecially the lose of the aviators.

I'm sure there are more He-111's that can be returned to an airworthy state, although this was the only one currently in that state.

I would like to see some people make another one worthy of flight once more . . . I love the cockpit of that plane, the entirely see-through nose, its a blast to fly. in the game.

I do and I have been meaning to get them tranferred to digital format for a while now but they are all on 35mm and I have no scanner. I'll see what I can do today.

It's a shame, sad about the flyers. It's not a Heinkel though, it's a CASA 2.111, Spainish license-built version of the HE-111. Very nearly identical to Heinkel.

Very sad indeed. Went by the crash site today. UNREAL! Imagine seeing it skidding across the ground towards you as it happened to that construction worker!

God that's horrible news. As an aircraft mechanic, I've seen the repercussions of an aircraft loss. My condolensces to the families involved. Such a sickening loss. I'd like to ask anyone here skilled at skinning aircraft to make one with the paint scheme shown on the CAF website. A memorial.

I heard roumours that one of the restoration companies at duxford had got its hands on a He111 within the last few years. maybe this will encourage them to go the whole hog and restore it to flying condition. as I belive it the demised He111 was fitted with rolls royce merlin engines, a final irony!
