    The helicopter seen here is a Dornier 32E-2, Reg. No. N94288.

    It was one of just 4 examples of this aircraft ever built.

    This movie shows the DO32 flown by DORNIER Testpilot, Friedrich (Fred) WISSEL,
    supported by Testengineer Gert Lang and Aircraft Mechanic Siegfried Trautwein.
    Done in November 1963. First time seen after 50 !! years, thanks for the movie.
