High-wing transport built in occupied France by Breguet, designed for
Lufthansa after the war. The Bv 144 was a shoulder-wing aircraft.
It had a variable incidence wing, turning round a tubular spar.
Two were built, but only one made a few flights.

Looks strangely modern : high wing, short landing gear, the cockpit profile
A symmetrical aircraft from Blohm und Voss? Surely some mistake!
