05/22/2005. Remarks by Nico Braas:
"The Kurier was a Fieseler Storch-like two-seat army cooperation
and liaison plane of which 150 were operational within the Yugoslavian
Air Force, the pictured one as s/n 50143. They were phased out in
1972 and most of them were distributed over the various flying clubs.
YU-CVH as pictured was used for glider towing and parachutists dropping
at Lesce airfield near Bled in what is now the Republic of Slovenia. In
August 1973 I made a few jumps from this rare plane as a visitor of the
local sky-diving club. It could carry two parachutists, one in the rear
seat and a second one (yes, me!) on a provisional strengthened floor
using two handgrips welded on the airframe. With my legs dangling
outside, it was a pleasure to see the valley of the Karawank mountains
from above! The engine is a non-standard 160 hp Continental."
