    Hello Everyone,

    I need some help in identifying the below German Light Aircraft. I thought it may be a Fiesler but I am not so sure. What is it?

    CC, it's definetly NOT a Storch, due to the different cabin, longer legs, and radial engine...

    I am going to agree that it is a Hs 126, it's certainly not a fiesler.
    Thanks for the info,

    Yeah, it's a radial. I agree with it being Hs126, too.

    The one in the background is an Hs126, but what's the burnt one in front? How sharp-eyed are we?

    The burnt out plane is a Soviet, because the picture is part of a collection of pictures that were all taken at an abandoned airfield. My guess is that it is an Iluyshin Il-4 because of the tail and the other pictures show that type sitting beside it.
