B-Versions and BMW production
There are some remarkable differences between the German and the English Wikipedia articles. As the autor of the first verion of the German Article I used the German publication “Flugzeug Profile” and copies of vintage documents. According to a preliminary data sheet there where two B Versions: B-0 and B-1. B-0 Kolibris indeed had open cockpits, but B-1 had enclosed cockpits. The 1.000 helicopters to be prodced for the Army were planned to be built by BMW in Eisenach, not in Munich ! 22.214.171.124 (talk) 11:59, 10 July 2009 (UTC) (User "Erzwo" in the German Wikipedia)
Where Eagles Dare
Does anyone know if this is the model for the rather anachronistically modern looking helicopter that appeared in the film "Where Eagles Dare"? I seem to remember that that one had a kind of geodesic bubble canopy on the front and that it transported more than one person. But maybe the design for the film was just pure fantasy - like the film itself, in fact :-) . hombre 126.96.36.199 (talk) 00:36, 16 June 2010 (UTC)
There's no relation between the two - the Where Eagles Dare copter is a Bell 47, anachronistic but understandable; Flettners were probably not around in working condition for film crews to borrow in the 60s! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:06, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
First tankbusting raid?
How could the FI 282 have destroyed allied tanks if it was completely unarmed? There are no references in any documentation to any sort of carried armament.
This is correct. Here is an explanation by Steve Coates that proves that there were no 282s in serviceable state in the Ardennes region during the battle of the bulge. Furthermore there is no German documentation supporting this claim.
