On Sept. 15, the Vertical Flight Society held its Vertical Flight Heritage Site Award ceremony at the Focke Wind Tunnel in Bremen, Germany. This was the 12th site recognized since VFS began the program in 2013, which recognizes and helps preserve the most important vertical flight historical sites around the world. The Focke Wind Tunnel was built by Prof. Dr. Henrich Focke, the famous German aeronautical pioneer and aircraft designer, and was his last research laboratory. Construction of the wind tunnel began immediately after his retirement in 1961 and it was finished in 1963. Interestingly, the wind tunnel building had been the workshop of a carpenter who had built the wind tunnel model of the first Focke-Wulf A 16 light transport aircraft in 1923.
