CFS Heinkel He 70 "Rayo" - Nationalist Air Force.
The Heinkel He 70 was a German mail plane, passenger, liaison, training and bomber aircraft of the 1930s. Although useful, it had a relatively brief commercial career before it was replaced by types which could carry more passengers. As a combat aircraft, it was a not a great success because it rapidly became outdated. Nevertheless, the He 70 was a brilliant design for its day, setting no fewer than eight world speed records by the beginning of 1933.
The Luftwafe commisioned a light bomber version which which was subsequently used in the Spanish Civil War. Twenty-eight aircraft were sent with the Legion Kondor, where they were used during the Spanish Civil War as fast reconnaissance and bomber aircraft. Their high speed gave them the nickname Rayo (lightning).
Eleven war survivors flew until 1950 with the "Ejercito del Aire" as liasson aircrafts.
