The Heinkel He 59 - Germany
The Heinkel He 59 was a seaplane often used for air-sea rescue duties.
It had been designed as a torpedo bomber and during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) and was a member of the Condor Legion.
The pilots soon discovered that the Heinkel He 59 made an ideal night bomber and could glide silently towards the enemy.
