If you're following my World Travels blog, you'll know that I went to Checkpoint Charlie earlier today. One of the intriguing sights were a set of wings up on the outside of the museum wall. I'm trying to figure out what sort of aircraft is was.
Clearly it's a light aircraft of some sort - maybe the size of a C172/ PA28 [maybe slightly larger?], with the registration D-EDDG. The wings appear to have leading-edge slats and to the right you can see a two-bladed prop.
The words on the caption [between the wings] read:
With an airplane carried by these wings and driven by this propeller the family Arndtz escaped on 22nd May 1982. Their escape agent Rolf Schauss (top photo) from Saarbrucken had flown without permission in the hedgehopping style to Hungary and landed as agreed on a field near Jak. With four GDR citizens on board he had overcome the Hungarian border flying as low as had been possible whilst being shot at and landed in Pinkafeld/ Austria. The action took 19 minutes.
A quick Google search didn't turn up anything obvious [and the rego appears to have been re-used]. Any ideas?
