    Porsche Rhein Flugzeugbau Multoplane RW-3

    I would like to know any information available on this limited production plane built in the late 1950's and used a Porsche engine. I have only found a short Wikipedia article, and no sales listed at all. Thank you.

    The German Wikipedia has some more information. Two prototypes were built in 1955 and 1956. The Rhein Flugzeugbau built 22 serial aircraft until 1961 and two were assembled from remaining parts by flying clubs until 1965. Two are preserved in museums and probably two by private owners in Germany. Two used aircraft were imported in the US.

    One of the prototypes seems to be still flying.
