There is no text information for this aircraft at the moment.
Developed from the earlier F4, the F5 retained many of the features of the earlier plane except it had a two spar wing. The top decking aft of the rear cockpit opened to reveal a large locker capable of carrying a spare propeller or skis. There were some 29+ built the first flying in 1933, but only one survived the war (which featured an enclosed cabin) but this was written off in France in 1968

According my observations, this must be the F-5 prototype.
Very good picture.

I have been for long, a devoted Fieseler collector- I would like to know the source (or if an original) of this photo.
