History[]

Built in 1937,[1] and taken on charge with the Sily Powietrzne Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej with s/n 5,[2] this aircraft was captured by the Germans in September 1939. Part of the German aviation museum, it was displayed with the Luftwaffe markings VG+AS.

Found in Poland after the war, it was used by civilian operators with the markings SP-AJB from November 1949 until 1953. Placed in the Wroclaw Technical Museum in 1954, it was transferred to the Polish Aviation Museum in December 1963.[3]
