Rudolf Hiendl, owner of a furniture store in Passau (at least at the time), signed a contract to buy a 'three seat sport aircraft' on 16 December 1961. The dealer through which he had ordererd the aircraft, S. M. Nitzsche of Neuburg/Donau, signed a 'Statement of Import' on 10 January 1962 (see Fig. 1). This form states that the aircraft will be delivered no later than 1 April 1962 for a price of DM 30,000.
