HD 28

National origin: Germany
Manufacturer: Heinkel
First flight: 1926
Number built: 1

The Heinkel HD 28 was a reconnaissance seaplane developed in Germany in the 1920s for export to Japan. It was a conventional single-bay biplane with equal-span, unstaggered wings and three cockpits in tandem. The fuselage was braced to both the upper and lower wings with a number of struts on its sides, in addition to the normal cabane struts. The rudder extended below the line of the lower fuselage, and there was a large ventral fin fitted. The rearmost cockpit incorporated a ring mount for a gunner.

A single example was built by Heinkel and supplied to Aichi as a pattern aircraft for possible production in Japan, however, this did not ensue.
