INTERNATIONAL AERO EXHIBITION OLYMPIA July 16-27, 1929
Bayerische Flugzeug Werke.
The B.F.W. M.23, designed like a number of other recent B.F.W. machines, by Herr Messerschmitt, is a two-seater low-wing monoplane of wood construction, very similar in its general conception to the familiar Klemm monoplanes, but designed for engines of rather greater power, such as the " Cirrus " or " Genet."
The wings are quickly detachable from the fuselage for housing or transport purposes.
The undercarriage is of the divided type.
The M.23 is a nice straightforward design, but shows no unusual features calling for comment.
