He 177 A-02. Generaloberst Ernst Udet favoured Heinkel's He 177 as a suitable four-engined heavy bomber for the Luftwaffe in 1941, an aircraft, which featured two engines on each wing coupled together as one driving a single airscrew. This gave the aircraft the appearance of a twin-engined machine, and produced a low-drag aerodynamic configuration. However it suffered from enduring problems with its DB 606 power plant. Whilst the He 177 met the need for a heavy bomber, it fell short of being a long-range bomber. The machine seen here was the second pre-production aircraft, the He 177 A-02, coded DL+AQ. It was tested at Rechlin but its ultimate fate is unknown.
