Blohm und Voss BV 141
The Blohm & Voss BV 141 was a World War II German tactical reconnaissance aircraft prototype. It is remembered as one of the most asymmetrical aircraft to have ever flown. While actually performing well it never was ordered into full scale production. Contributing factors to that decision were that its preferred engine was in greater demand for the Focke-Wulf 190 fighter, and there was also another tactical reconnaissance in development; the Focke-Wulf Fw 189.
