Dam sweet. Just like the pic, full military colors, yellow wing tip, the real deal, heard it OVER the tractor I was running. Stopped and watched it go over. Gotta be a show around. Beautiful. Pristine. The gerry markings were real visible. It passed over at this angle.
Outstanding restore job. What a bird. What a sound

Nice edit. The only Ju-52 I've seen was at the USAF museum in Dayton. That was awesome. I wish I could have seen one flying tho.

Slow plane. Why didn't you follow it on your tractor and get pilot interview. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Hey I found it! This was the one I saw!
I saw the silhouette and thought "TB-3" , then trimotor (we have one flying about 100 miles from here, island hopping) but then...the yellow wing tips...the German markings..nothing but a troop carrying junkers.
Only ONE flying! I soooo wanted to shoot it down. I'm guessing it was going 125ish. All I could think was scramble the I-16 LOL. What a joy to see that old bird.

Aren't the Ford and Fokker Tri-motors high wing types though?

"Tante Ju" actually started life as a single engine type....the 2 wing engines were added later

The Ju52 is (was?) flying over Berlin on a regular basis. Its starting and landing in Tempelhof, that is a perfect match. Havent seen the "Tante" in a while though.
And no historical markings .... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I saw the Lufthansa Ju-52 (in historical lufthansa colours) giving joy rides over Copenhagen a few months ago... - The lumbering slow speed is really impressive, it looks as if it "sails" across the sky..

A Ju52 used to give sight seeing tours over London a couple of years back. Used to see it most mornings.

Yes, and in fact, we call it erroneously. The birds we have in FB are not Ju 52, but Ju 52/3m... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

The graphics card is a lowly Tyan 9700 pro...tweaked doggie style http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
I had a link to the real deal, not sure why it doesnt work.
Funny, five years ago, I couldn't tell an early Yak from a Mig, a TB3 from a Ju-52.
This game has certainly expanded my knowledge of those circa planes. When I watch old war movies now its much more fun
What a bird, what a bird. So cool

Yesterday a B-25 flew over my house which is next to an airfield. I was tempted to take out my 88 out of the garage http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I got to walk through a Ju-52 at Oshkosh last year. Also got to see it fly last year and again this year. It was definitely neat!

There's a flyable A6M2 at the local air museum, but the Pratt & Whitney emblem on the engine is a little too obvious to miss. At least the owner isn't making any qualms about its powerplant.

Not sure, but you're probably right. Most flyable old birds have been reengined for various reasons:

1) Obviously, the original and rare power plant is likely to have been destroyed, degraded by time and environment or lacks vital parts.

2) It's not easy to find original parts for these rare engines, sometimes there're no extant examples, and the references and resources are scarce to make lacking parts from scratch.

3) When intended to fly often and in exhibition, it's preferable to count on well-known more powerful, reliable, and easily reparable engines than the original. We all like historical accuracy, but safety is a must when human lives and unique airframes are in the air -and the ground. After all, who would fly a Blériot XI with an Anzani 25HP three-cilinder engine nowadays without saying his prayers?
