The Fieseler Fi 156 Storch ("Stork") was the most successful short take off and landing aircraft produced during WWII. The Storch entered service in 1937 and was produced as a liaison aircraft or forward air control. After WWII, the same aircraft was produced in Czechoslovakia by Mraz and in France by the Morane Saulnier company. The French version was known as MS 500 / 502 Criquet where it continued in service with the French Air Force.
