WWII Aircraft of the Day - The Heinkel he 111
The Heinkel he 111 - Germany
The Heinkel he 111 was the Luftwaffes' most famous medium bomber.
It was designed by Siegfried and Walter Günter in the early 1930s and was in violation of the Treaty of Versailles.
A vast variety of this type of aircraft were built during WWII some were even being used for torpedo attacks.
The Heinkel he 111 was also occassionally used to carry troops, but this was not as unusual as it sounds because this type of aircraft had began as a pre-war airliner with Luft Hansa.
