German transport aircraft Heinkel He.111 Z-1 “Zwilling” (“Twins”). It was used to tow the Me.321 and Go.242 gliders.
A total of 12 He.111 Z-1 aircraft were produced. The picture was taken at the French airfield Tavaux, presumably in the spring of 1943, after the return of the aircraft from the Eastern Front, where they took part in the organization of the “Kuban bridge” as part of the 1st Luftwaffe air fleet.
Date: spring 1943
