    Along the lines of my previous threads and somewhat dfferent, I present a few pics of Erwin Rommel and the planes he flew in and/or sometimes flew. Rommel was known to hop in his Storch and fly over the battlefront to get a clearer picture on operations. I'm not sure if he held a pilot's license. The low flying Storch is noted as Rommel and the solitary Storch is his plane and he was the photographer.

    And some others. The He 111 is known to transport him around. I don't have any info on the Ju 87. And, of course, the famous shot of Rommel inspecting 'Pips' Priller's Fw 190.

    Cool Harrison! There is another I'm looking for that has him looking out the cockpit of a Caproni.

    Thats a good one. The one I tried to get is closer and you can see Rommel waving out the side cockpit window.

    Just caught up with this - good stuff Chris! What's the aircraft Harrison posted? Looks like a conversion of an American type, the name/number of which escapes me (maybe a Stinson?) to look like a Storch.

    It looks like the same one Chris posted in his 1st post, 2nd photo? They both have 5F+YK, not sure if its an adaptation but they're the same plane, I think :lol:

    And I'm not sure that the one I posted isn't a current replica. Harrison didn't we see that Storch at Reading last year? Gonna check my pics.
