Meet what was designed as a He-274 and wound up as an AAS 01A.

Why the French insignia? Because construction of two prototypes was started in France by Farman in Suresnes and having survived the war (despite orders to destroy them) they were completed and flown by the French Air Force and used for amongst other things flight testing of smaller aircraft as we see here.


Many French businesses did very well thank you out of working for the occupying forces during WW2 but we no longer speak of that because we now know that all of France was deeply involved in the Resistance and there were only about 25 collaborators in the whole country.
