Inside a Heinkel He 111

Recommended Posts

Views of the interior of a Heinkel He 111, the cockpit with pilot, right, and observer left, behind them, either the air gunner/mechanic or the radio operator.

Other views show the place of the wireless operator and the bomb racks. A further picture shows a He 111 of KG 26 over Norway in 1940, looks like 1H+DK are the markings?

A reconstruction of the upperdashboard (Gerätebrett), apparently in collection of Imperial War Museum, not quite complete

It is amazing how small the interiors of the WW2 planes were. The movies and TV make them look much larger that what they were.

I remember at the Frankfurt airport in the 1980s they had a nice restored (at least externally) HE-111 on display on the roof. I used to go up there and check it out while waiting for my flights. Don't know what happened to it.
