With its four engines it was at the time one of the largest float-equipped seaplanes that had been built. Initially designed as mail/cargo aircraft for Deutche Lufthansa, on the outbreak of World War II, the planes were transferred to Luftwaffe and used for transport, reconnaissance and minesweeping work over the Baltic Sea.

Blohm  Voss BV 238 V1.  German sources claim that the BV 238 V1 was discovered by the RAF between 23 April and 26 April 1945. The Allies were concerned that Hitler could use it to escape to South America, and so an attack followed shortly afterwards. The aircraft was attacked by Hawker Typhoons, or Hawker Tempests. Their strafing set the engines alight, and the aircraft burnt and sank with only part of a wing remaining above the surface.
