One flies over my house all the time. Ju-52's aren't really that special. They're still quite prominent.

I was at Duxford, one of the 52s was is ww2 colours with the yellow bands around the nose cones for the Eastern Front. At one point it had just taken off and was flown over by several Griffon engined Spitfires. It looked nervous.

They are special, but based on the replies to this thread I think there are a few more than 5 still flyable. There are 3 at Dubendorf (Zurich) just a few kilometers from my house that fly regularly. I got a flight in one for my birthday this year, good ol' Tante Ju. I saw the one in Dayton on vacation this year, though it was only parked. Beautiful aircraft.

There are 5 flyable Ju's in Europe, one in the US and one in South Africa.
4 of them are original Junkers build machines, 3 Spanish license builds.
The three in Switzerland owned by Ju-Air are original Junkers, still flying with the original engines.
The Hamburg-based one owned by Lufthansa is german-build as well (even served with Lufthansa before the war). D-AQUI often flies in my area in Summertime. I am not sure but at least I heard the drone of her engines once or twice last week. But 200 Euros per ride is too much for me.
I think the Ju in Bratislava was probably a swiss example or D-AQUI.
The one in Duxford was a CASA-build Ju 52, restored to airworthyness last year by EADS/Airbus in Toulouse. It carries east front markings almost like the one in Il2.
The CAF Ju 52 in the US and the SAA tourist plane in South Africa are CASA build examples as well. But the SAA operated Ju 52s in the 1930s, but scrapped them postwar and bought an example (though spanish build) as a tourist attraction in the 1980s. Much as Lufthansa did with D-AQUI at the same time.
I think there could be even more of those Ju's become flyable in the future.

It must be the Lufthansa Ju 52 D-AQUI "Tempelhof" (registered as D-CDLH). It is the only flyable Ju 52 in Europe with three-bladed propellers. Sad, it has no more it's original BMW engines, but Pratt&Whitney Wasp

There are so many of those still that there are companies still making all the parts for them.

There is one flying C-47 in Germany, in Berlin.
An ex RAF Berlin airlift Dakota even.
There used to be another one, but in 1995 someone crashed it into a mountainside near Heidelberg in bad weather. The crew was killed.

There's a JU52 flying from Cologne-Bonn Airport for 1h sightseeing roundtrips - it passes over my house frequently - especially when the weather is fine ...

Ive seen a P40 and 2 other unidentified warbirds a few months back around Waukesha WI. I heard them when I was coming outta a supermarket, but by the time I found them in the sky, they were to far to ident, but I am pretty sure I saw the big dihedral of a P40

Not really... it wasn't restored by EADS/Airbus, but just sponsored by EADS. It was restored at la Ferte-Allais by the AJBS (it took 12 years to complete)

And it's not a CASA 352 (as they thought initially) but a Ju52/3m built in Germany, then sent to Spain (and at some point transformed by CASA to the CASA 352 standart)

you can have more information there:
