In 1927, Focke-Wulf built the S-24 "Kiebitz" also known as the "Peewit".
This biplane is a look-a-like with the UL-biplane "Kiebitz". The modern Kiebitz was designed
by Michael Platzer and is available as an UL-biplane kit since 1984. Almost 300 Kiebitz biplanes already
have been build by homebuilders throughout the world. When You want a new Kiebitz, You have to build it Yourself in
accordance with the drawings! It costs a lot of perseverance: building a Kiebitz will take about 1500 hours.
If You lose courage: it is possible to purchase some parts, like the under-carriage.
Platzer Kiebitz B-450 NIS c/n 247 was registered PH-3W2 in the Netherlands on 5 January 2005.
This aircraft is powered by a Nissan / Platzer MA 12P engine. The Platzer Kiebitz B-450 NIS PH-3W2
was photographed at the MLA-airfield Stadskanaal in Vledderveen, the Netherlands.
