Two further views of Rolls-Royce's He 70G. Unlike the He 70A, G-ADZF had a centralised pilots cabin instead of the port offset configuration, a longer fuselage and no second crew member's position.
Третий прототип самолета He 70, обозначенный как He 70b, стал первой машиной с полным комплектом оборудования, оговоренного компанией DLH.
The second He 70 bearing the test markings D-3 and later to become D-2537. It flew with Lufthansa and bore the name Blitz (Lightning), this becoming the unofficial name for the type thereafter. This photograph was taken at Staaken, Berlin, in the winter of 1932.
