The Fieseler Storch Fi-156 was another one of these very special aircraft that earned their fame in World War 2. Where the British used their Lysander for nightly STOL operations, the German side had the Storch to land on virtually ANY place that wasn't inundated.
This particular model is another master piece of our designated aircraft designer Simon Smeiman, and built after an existing and still flying specimen. I traveled to Florida twice to visit the wonderful aircraft museum and aviation events organization of Kermit Weeks; Fantasy of Flight. That's where I took all the photos for this bird, sat in it, crawled underneath and talked ot the pilot.
Yes, it is a war time and military aircraft, and yes, some versions have a machinegun in the back.... and it actually fires as well. But even if you're not so fond of wartime machines, chances are you'll love this little bird. You can use the unarmed Ambulance version.
It flies slower than a Cessna, lands in about a quarter of the distance, has excellent visibility all around and is the ultimate plane to savour the scenery gliding by underneath.
This FSAddon model comes in two versions; wheels and skis.
There are regular versions, used for VIP transport and artillery control, but there's also a very special ambulance version with two wounded soldiers carried on stretchers behind the pilot !
Furthermore you get no less than TEN different liveries with these versions. Check out the images we provided.
Customers of Fieseler Storch Operations will have the opportunity of FREE downls of 'special missions' that will be released later this year.
