Dorner DO 23.
The DO 23 was a definitive development of the DO 11, which had acquired an unenviable reputation as a result of many accidents, & was dubbed the Fliegender Sarg (Flying Coffin) by the unfortunate crews who flew them. After extensive testing the Do 23 was found to be an acceptable aircraft. Initially designated Do13, the numbering was altered to 23 because of the superstition of many who flew them. Specification- four seat Heavy Day & Night Bomber. Two BMW V1U 12 cylinder liquid cooled engines. Max speed 161mph. Max weight loaded 20282lbs.
