J-3 Orzeł/Eagle was the third, after J-1 Prząśniczka and J-2 Polonez single-seat amateur aircraft, designed by Jarosław Janowski. A single example was built by Witold Kalita, J. Janowski and Marian Nowak, for whom the aircraft was intended. The aircraft of wooden construction fea-tured Wortmann airfoil with flaperons all along the trailing edge, wingtip fuel tanks and composite landing gear legs. The aircraft was powered in succession by a modified Porsche car engine, a Rotax and a BMW R100 engines.

The aircraft was taken by Marian Nowak to Canada. It took part in the 1980 Oshkosh Fly-In as the first amateur construction from the Eastern Bloc. It was donated to the Museum in 2003 by the last owner, Mr Wiesław Pawełkiewicz of Canada.
