morane

Have a look at the Morane, sitting at the airfield Ütersen/Heist in the spring of 2017. A few weeks ago apprentices of the Lufthansa Workshop disassembled the plane and stored it in the hangar so we could pick it up.

The plane is a French four seater Morane Saulnier type MS 893 E, equipped with a 4 cylinder Lycoming engine with 180 HP. Unfortunately we could neither get the engine nor the propeller, but we have a similar engine in our own workshop which we may use. The Morane company merged into the former Sud-Aviation. This company sold the plane under the name „Rallye“ and finally sold the production to PZL in Poland where it again changed its name into „Koliber“.

The plane had bee sitting at the airfield Ütersen/Heist for several years and was property of Air Hamburg.

A team of four acomplished the collection of the plane:  ...Names ….

Mr Langenbach, one of our members from Pinneberg was also there, he had established the contact with the proprietor (Thank you very much, Mr Langenbach!). Mr Dirk Claasen also gave us a hand. He drove the truck which was given to us free of charge by the forwarding company Spedition Koberger.

What’s next?

The plane has to be cleaned, painted and finally rigged. We are looking for somebody who will be in charge of this job.
