History

Blohm & Voss was a German shipbuilding company, located in Hamburg. And was founded on 5 April 1877 in charge of aircraft design was Dr.-Ing. Richard Vogt.
Blohm & Voss also operated the Hamburger Flugzeugbau aircraft company. Although initially given the factory code Ha for the factory's name the link with Blohm & Voss shipyards proved too strong and therefore the early aircraft designs were called "Blohm & Voss type Ha followed by the design number. To end this confusion, in 1938 the RLM changed the company code to BV, Aircraft built by Blohm & Voss include.
