Focke-Wulf Fw 56 Stösser

06/18/2003. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "This single-seat advanced trainer designed by chief-engineer Blaser, flew for the first time late in 1933. This, and the other Stösser (Goshawk) prototypes , had several modification, as redesigned undercarriage with the deletion of the wheel-spads shown in this photo. For the fighter training two machineguns were placed on top of the engine. A total of about 1,000 have been built.
