Udet-U8-01
 
The Udet U-8 Limousine was a German transport and passenger aircraft, first flown in 1925. A high winged monoplane aircraft with seating for three passengers in an enclosed cabin, the aircraft was equipped with a fixed wheel undercarriage.
Four aircraft of the basic U 8 model were produced and three delivered to Deutsche Aero Lloyd GmbH while the fourth (D-670) was delivered to Nordbayeriche Verkehrsflug GmbH.

In 1926 Deutsche Aero Lloyd transferred their two remaining U 8 aircraft to DLH where they were in service until 1928. All three U-8 belonging DLH were scrapped in 1928. The Nordbayeriche Verkehrsflug aircraft crashed in 1926.

The aircraft was developed further to the Model U 8a, where the whole wing was redesigned wing area was increased by 7 m², and the aircraft was fitted with the more powerful Siemens & Halske sh 12 100-horsepower (75 kW)engine. The aircraft's empty weight thus increased by 190 kg, despite the powerful engine maximum speed was reduced to 145 km / h while the range increased to 520 kilometers. One airplane was produced which was delivered to Nordbayeriche Verkehrsflug in 1925, and the aircraft was transferred in 1926 to DVS for evaluation. On June 26, 1929 the aircraft was completely destroyed.
