A widely used ultralight aircraft is the Ikarus Fox II / C-22. Comco developed the Fox II as the successor of the popular Ikarus Sherpa ultralight aeroplane. Production of the improved 2-seat Fox II by Comco Ikarus GmbH in Mengen, Germany, started in 1984. In 1987, the C22 Fox II replaced the Fox II in production. Over 1000 Fox II / C22 planes were built and the ultralight is exported to almost every European country, Asia, the Near East and South-America. The Ikarus C22 was offered for sale in three models: C22 C, C22 CS and Aero. The CS model has a three-blade propeller, covered engine and a stainless steel exhaust system. The Comco-Ikarus C 22 CS Aero is the top model in the C 22 series and has a glass-fibre fuselage closed cockpit-cubicle with doors on both sides, an instrument console, etc. The C 22 C Aero is powered by a 80 hp 4-cylinder-4-stroke liquid-cooled / air-cooled Rotax 912 UL version engine.

The 2001-built Comco-Ikarus C22 C s/n 0109-3747 was registered PH-3N7 on 7 November 2001. The registered type of the PH-3N7 was changed into Fox C 22C on 7 April 2004. The Ultralight aircaft is powered by a Rotax 582 UL engine. On 12 March 2006, the aircraft was damaged after a forced landing due to engine problems. The aircraft was written-off and the registration PH-3N7 was cancelled on 19 April 2006. Fox C 22C PH-3N7 was photographed at the ULM-aerodrome Stadskanaal in Vledderveen, the Netherlands.
