     Heinkel He-70 Blitz was designed as a fast passenger and mail plane. When it was first flown in late 1932 it was a very advanced design, due to its streamlined fuselage, retractable undercarriage and distinctive, gull-wing elliptical wings.
     With its maximum speed of 225 mph (360 km/h) it was fast and broke a number of speed records. Lufthansa received
14 He-70's, with accommodations for 4-5 passengers, but operated them for only short time.
     Military version followed as a three-seat light bomber, serving with Luftwaffe, Condor Legion and with Nationalist forces in Spain. Almost 300 planes were built, eighteen for Hungary (as He-170) with radial engine.
     By the start of WWII He-70 was obsolete and served only as trainer aircraft. In Spain it remained in service untill 1950.
