Gerhard Krems – The Last Living Pilot of the Dornier 17

Ex pilot Gerhard Krems is one of the last still alive to have flown a Dornier.

“I was very impressed when I saw the plane for the first time. It made a fantastic impression on me. In comparison to the other planes it looked somewhat different and I only later realized why…It was agile. It was very slender and it was elegant, really elegant, but you only realized quite how elegant when you saw it in the sky”
