    Rather than a "Zaunkoenig", the aircraft is a Brunswick LF-1 Zaunkonig, Reg. No. G-ALUA.

    Just 4 examples were made.

    Thanks. We guess that the spelling was an alternative to the umlaut, but we can easily add that here. Feel free to bring others to our attention should you come across them!
