This aircraft is a He111H-1 VIP transport, namely the aircraft VIP General Weise, Wr.5113, commander of the 11th Panzer Division. It was captured August 28, 1944, and was paid in early 1945 Dor Group (GB 1/31 Aunis) who used especially the Ju88A-4. For all we know it was never armed and used only for connecting flights, mostly flown by the commander Dor itself. This aircraft had three major periods.

1. From August 44 to March 45: He kept his German camouflage surlequel were applied roundels and black and white stripes of recognition.
2. In March 45 arrival at Cazaux, he was repainted light beige with red propeller spinners. It is from that moment he was called "the Pinasse" by mechanics, a pinnace is a small boat of the Bordeaux region.
