HISTORY & BACKGROUND
The Dornier Do-27 is a German single-engine STOL utility aircraft that was designed and manufactured by Dornier GmbH. The Do-27's precursor, the Do-25, was developed by Dornier at the firm's facilities in Spain in order to satisfy a Spanish military requirement that called for a light utility aircraft with short takeoff and landing performance. On 27 June 1955, the original prototype performed its maiden flight in Spain. A total of 40 Do 27s were manufactured in Spain by Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA, designated CASA-127. However, the majority of production aircraft were constructed at Dornier's main base in Germany; the first German-built aircraft conducted its first flight on 17 October 1956. A total of 428 Do 27s would be produced in Germany.
Do 27H-2 is a variant of the Do-27H-1 for the Swiss Air Force with some modifications and with auxiliary fuel tanks.
This SN 2012 has been delivered to the Swiss Air Force in February 1959. It served as V-605 and has been withdrawn in May 1981. June 1981 with 2’246 hrs TT and operated until July 2003.
