Title:  Focke-Wulf Fw200 Condor

The Fw200 four-engined long-range monoplane was originally developed as a long-range airliner and first flew in 1937. Its military potential was quickly realised, and as well as a military transport variants were developed for long-range reconnaissance and maritime patrol. The aircraft was very successful against Atlantic shipping in the early years of WW2 but after becoming vulnerable to ship-launched fighters it was restricted to reconnaissance operations.

276 examples were built, and one example was well-known as the personal transport of Adolf Hitler. Only a few examples survived the war, in Spain, but these were all scrapped by 1950. An example was raised from a Norwegian fjord in poor condition in 1999 and was subjected to a complete restoration by Airbus, and is now housed at the Tempelhof Aviation Museum.

This title contains three Luftwaffe technical manuals for the Focke-Wulf Fw200 Condor; a flight manual, a brief operating manual, and a data-file; along with a manufacturer’s publicity brochure. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
