rohr-x


A long-range passenger flying boat, the first prototype flew on August 7, 1928.

Two models were produced. The Romar I (Werk Nrs 29,30 and 31), registrations D-1693, D-1734, and D-1747 respectively.

The single Romar II built, Werk Nr 62, went to France on the 1st April 1931 as F-AKEM.

The difference in the models was that the Romar II had BMW VIaU engines driving through a Farman gearbox.
At some point the fin was changed on all models.

The three German aircraft, named "Hamburg", "Bremen" and "Lubeck", were all scrapped in 1933.
