It has again gone a little while where it has worked very well with Heinkel 115 project. The focus during this period has been on working with a new instrument panel, completion of work on building a new hydraulic hand pump, the continuous ongoing work to preserve electrical parts, as well as further work with documentation, photos and sharing archive. Work on a new engine buck has been completed ended in anticipation of us being able to solve the problem of missing it one of the aircraft's engines. Work continues on preparing to be able to start up the work that will have to be done with the center section.

We also have started up again looking for parts lists / catalogs / Spare part list / service-parts-list for flyet. Both Norway and Sweden operated these aircraft, and we have not yet given up the hope of tracking these down in one of these two countries. It's through Christian König also made attempts to trace these catalogs through his wide network of contacts in and outside Germany. Among other things, there will be an article in FlyPlast and hopefully also I FlugzeugClassic m.m..
