The Fieseler Fi 156 V 2 Storch (Stork) observation and command plane was destined to become one of the most famous and versatile aircraft of World War II. This German flew such passengers as Hermann Göring, Benito Mussolini… and Even Winston Churchill. The famed “Desert Fox” and leader of the German Afrika Korps, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel; and almost all other senior German commanders, clamored for the sturdy little observation and command plane for their own use. The Storch was also the last German aircraft to be down on the western front being shot down with Colt 45’s by and American Piper Cub!
