The Dornier Do 17Z-2 was designed by the German Dornier Flugzeugwerke company in the 1930s as a fast lightweight bomber, with the theory being its speed would mean it could out run any defending fighter aircraft. The slender fuselage of the aircraft led to its nickname 'The Flying Pencil'.
The first combat use of the Do 17 would be during the Spanish Civil war where Luftwaffe pilots would receive good practise for what would follow later in WWII. During the opening stages of WWII the Do 17 would perform well against lesser opposition, however the tide would turn in 1940 when it was seriously outclassed when faced with fighter aircraft over Britain.
