Default A Rare Wonderful Airplane

This Fieseler Fi 156 Storch is owned and flown by my brother-in-laws friend. It is one of the finest STOL airplanes ever built. With a slight breeze, it can take off in under 200 feet and do a full stop landing in 65 feet. Cockpit windows are such that one can look straight down. High lift devices cover the entire front and rear wing surfaces. In production from 1936-1945. This is not a reproduction but a complete restoration and possibly one of the last still flying.

Cool picture, cool aircraft and interesting history. It looks like a nice restoration...I wonder how long and how much ($'s) took?

Jehan, this guy had some bucks. He had his own paved runway on his property.
He also had a Beech Debonaire and some collector autos.
