In the 4th picture, the text says tthe name of the bird is BTZ Dragon.
yikes. The name had caught my attention a looooong time ago, in 1996 when I heard of the Coleoptere for the first time (well, second time after Tintin's Dan Cooper "Le mur du silence")dan_inbox said:BTZ was Bureau Technique Zborowski.
Helmut Graf von Zborowski was an Austrian aristocrat turned SS officer, who worked on the Walther rocket engine and other last-ditch weapons at the end of WW2. He was captured by the French.
The BTZ was created to get hold of his technical knowledge and continue his research, while keeping him more-or-less incommunicado in a castle near Paris to avoid the embarrassment of his unsavory past.
