The Flying Heritage Collection’s Fieseler Storch has folding wings. The slow-flying liaison plane cruises at around 90 miles an hour — much less if it’s windy. The plane was equipped with wings that swing and lock aft. It reduced the width of the 46-foot-plus plane to 15 feet. That allowed it to be loaded on a train car and shuttled from place to place, regardless of how hard the wind is blowing!
