Ilyushin Il-18B: Whole LOT-ta love.

One of the series of vintage photos used by LOT to commemorate the anniversaries of various of their routes. Classic beauty never gets out of style, that Il-18‘s engine nacelle included.

Heinkel He 112B-2/U2: Fighters from the cradle.

The utterly impressive line-out of the second batch of the thirty He 112 acquired by Romania at Rostock, Sept. 1939. Already at war, some of these He 112s found themselves employed by the “Factory Protection Flight” before their delivery.

The B-2s were characterised by their more powerful (700hp) fuel-injected Jumo 210Ga; not world-beaters in horse power but sure purposeful-looking.
