    Aircraft is presently equipped with 4 seats.
    A second seat bench is included in the offer to operate the aircraft in a 6-seat configuration (only seat belts subject to replacement).
    Being the -B3 version of the Dornier 27, the aircraft features dual controls with one set of brakes on the pilot side.
    On the bottom side to the rear of the pilots, there is a large camera hole facing directly downwards for photo missions.
    This was used for reconnaissance missions on the military versions of the Dornier 27. Furthermore, it is possible to open the rear doors in flight, making the aircraft perfect for aerial photography as well as parachute dropping.
    The Dornier 27s speed range from stall speed (24 kts) to never exceed speed (178 kts) is remarkable and makes it worth to see on airshows.
    Its slats and flaperons support the STOL-abilities of the aircraft. Together with its useful load of 600kg, this is a very versatile airplane.
    Built in 1959, this Dornier 27 (s/n 392) was used as a research platform starting in 1960. Registered as YA+913 and later 56+84, the aircraft was assigned to ESt 61 (Erprobungsstelle) in Oberpfaffenhoffen and later served the German Test- and Research Institute for Aviation and Spaceflight (DFVLR) in Braunschweig. She is still wearing the latter's paint scheme today.
