Dornier 228 of the Italian Army

by Reuben Saliba



The Dornier has been in service with both civil and military duties. I believe that the Dornier 228 has been a subject of several plastic kit manufacturers too. Again, this year's local airshow played host to several plane including this Dornier. I hope your frequent visitors to your site appreciate the lines of this airplane.
