We had 11 January pleasure of having Christian König visiting. Cristian has previously written three great books on various German planes, including Arado 196. He is also famous as a writer in a number of reputable fly journals. The occasion for that he now wanted to take a closer look at our Heinkel He 115, his plans to write a book about, among others. this aircraft. His knowledge of German planes are very impressive and he has given us new information on both parts as belonging to the plane, as painted markings on aircraft. Surface cockpit is a label with the number 87 and text ROTRING standing right under this. We have previously not known to the meaning of this. Christian has been able to establish for us that's 87 reported that it would be filled aviation gasoline of quality A2 or A4. ROTRING says ROTRING oil made from INTAVA had to be used on engines. He works also work to find information on the pilot's seat has been designed. Pilot's seat is provided with a reinforcing plate which we are uncertain whether stood under and behind the seat, proportions if the disc has been an integral part of this.

Siegfried work steadily ahead with conserving and as far as possible to rebuild the instruments that we in June 2012 found in plane. Some of these are now finished and ready for further use in the new exhibition space our. We learn along the way constantly new things about which instruments hav been in use for aircraft, and not least about how these worked.

When inventory in the nose and cockpit sections were dismantled, we saw that it was missing several støypte constructions. Including suspension of rudder pedals. We are currently working to make copies of these suspensions. These copies will be used as “plugs” in støypeformer for the parts that we lack. This is time-consuming work that we previously did not have personal experience with. Fortunately lacking not all parts of pedal suspensions and some of these we can after some repair use that plug into a støypeform.

Efforts Heinkel He 115 project since January 2018 been ruled by the Armed Forces Museum is in a process where they will consider future ownership of equipment that is lent on landfill agreements. We therefore remain temporarily any restrictions on working with plane.
