Welcome to another addition of Warplane Wednesday, where I bring attention to rare, unique, or just left out aircraft not featured in the game currently, and give it the spotlight for all to talk about and enjoy.

 

This week is a German Heavy Bomber that started out with a civilian role, its the BV 142!


 

The Blohm & Voss BV 142 was a German civil aircraft developed for the transatlantic airmail service, originally designed for the German national airline Luft Hansa. The first prototype was flown on 11 October 1938.

Interesting plane but a sub 1,000 pound payload isn't exactly heavy particularly when compared to the B17's 8,000 pounds


I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.
