REVELL BLOHM & VOSS BV222 1


The BV 222 was the largest flying boat built during the Second World War. It had a Wingspan of 46 meters (150 ft 9ins) and a range of 7000 km (4350 miles). 
The Blohm & Voss BV 222 was developed in 1937 as an air-transport flying boat for the German Lufthansa. Non-stop flights between Germany and the US were planned carrying between 16 and 24 passengers at a take-off weight of around 45 tons. With the Second World War starting, the German Luftwaffe took control of the V1 for use as long distance transport aircraft. In mid1942, Maritime Air Transport Squadron 222 was formed and bought V2 to V6 and V8 into service. The aircraft commuted between Athens and the Libyan coast with supplies for the Africa Corps. 
By June 1943, three BV 222's had been converted into Reconnaissance Flying-boats fitted with the FuG 200 radar. In September 1943, the 1./SAGr.129 (Maritime Reconnaissance Group 129) in Biscarrosse on the French West Atlantic Coast started regular flights with V2, V4 and V9 to reconnoitre enemy convoys in the Atlantic and guide German U-boats to their position. In June 1944, all BV 222's were moved to Norway where they were captured after the war by British troops.
