D-ELFK/G-AAHW Baden-Baden-Oos 16 May 198772 viewsThis lovely Klemm 25 was up for auction at one of the regular aircraft sales at B-B. It wasn't until I checked much later that I discovered it was the very machine I was allowed to sit in at Thruxton some 25 years earlier. She is now (or still) in the Koch collection in a natural wood finish and airworthy, at the former Russian air base at Grossenhain.
