  • Remark: This aircraft is the first amateur built aircraft in Poland and it had a first flight in spring 1971. It was built by Mr. Eugeniusz Pieniążek in order to escape from Poland because of his persecution by the secret police. On 13 September 1971 after take-off for return journey from Krosno to Bielsko-Biała, he turned southward and after three hours of flight at low altitude and bad weather over Czechoslovakia and Hungary he successfully landed in Subotica in Yugoslavia. Seven months later he was allowed to go to Austria and from there he went to Sweden. In 1973 Mr. Pieniążek made a journey back to Subotica, to bring the Kukułka to Sweden. After coming back to Sweden, the aircraft was stored for long 17 years in a hangar at Eskillstuna and only in 1990 the plane was brought back to flying condition. The aircraft was shipped back to Poland in 1993 and it was registered again in Poland with registration SP-FKU in 1996. Later, the original registration SP-PHN was returned. On 13 September 2005, on the 34th anniversary of flight to Yugoslavia, Mr. Eugeniusz Pieniążek donated the plane to the Polish Aviation Museum in Krakow.
