Focke-Wulf Fw 44
Moment of partial touch-down of Focke-Wulf Fw 44 Stieglitz [goldfinch] two-seat biplane trainer ?G+AD (possibly CG+AD), powered by a Siemens Sh 14 radial engine. Aircraft appears to be painted in dark green camouflage, with undersides in 65 and a yellow fuselage band.
This Fw 44 was photographed during the final four years of the war; location unknown. The inscription on the back of the photograph simply reads: Landung im Schnee [snow landing]. (Fischer collection)
