D-FOAB PZL-106 AR Kruk c/n 48040 - 'DDR-TAB Interflug' - Flugplatz Nordhorn-Lingen 'Klausheide' in Germany - 30 September 2001 more agricultural planes

The PZL-Okecie PZL-106 AR Kruk is an agricultural aircraft. The Kruk was developed by "Centrum Naukowo-Produkcynje Samolotow Lekkick - PZL" in Warsaw, Poland, as a replacement of the widely used Z-37 Cmelaks of the Warsaw Pact Countries. The PZL-106 was flown first in April 1973. The prototype was powered by an Avo-Lycoming, the production aircraft were fitted with a Russian Schwezow-radial engine.

Interflug ordered 53 PZL-106A of which c/n 48040 was converted to a double control to enable pilot-education. After the end of the DDR and elimination of Interflug all Kruks were put out of service. DDR-TAB was grounded at Magdeburg. After a laboriously reconstruction the aircraft was licensed as D-FOAB in 1994. On 30 September 2001, PZL-106AR Kruk DDR-TAB was photographed at the Nordhorn-Lingen airfield "Klausheide" in Germany painted as the DDR-TAB of Interflug DDR-TAB.
