I need to resume these aircraft picture threads! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

So here we have one of my favorite transport planes from World War II: the infamous Junkers Ju-52/3m. A plane that began as a civilian airliner from the single engined Ju-52/1m and evolved into a light bomber and transport plane as well as a number of other duties such as paratroop drop and medical missions. A truly legendary plane, and she still looks good.

This version on display here was built in France in 1947 (the French and Spanish continued to produce this aircraft after WW2) and sold to the Deutsches Museum for the symbolic price of 1 France.

Cockpit shots. The cockpit was a behind a thick and dirty plexi glass covering so this was the best I could come up with...

I just love that bird. Both were I grew up near Düsseldorf and now in Frankfurt I see Ju52s flying around during the summer months. The sound it makes is fantastic. A deep rumble letting you know Tante Ju comes way in advance. I still wait for the day that bird comes available in a Sim.

Thanks for posting!

Seen the Lufthansa Junkers displaying at Flying Legends the last two years - it gives an amazing display, capable of some very impressive aerobatics (albiet not in the vertical http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif)

It was actually available in Fighter Squadron SDOE as a modded plane. You could just drop parachutes and you had that single MG to protect you. That was cool.

Anytime! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I so wish this plane was available in IL-2. You know, for like "boring" transport or parachute missions or flying supplies into Stalingrad or some other war zone and always having to fear that you're going to get jumped by enemy planes. Now that could actually be an interesting mission / campaign seeing that surviving is going to be mega hard!

My grandmother worked at a Luftwaffe airbase in Southern Germany during WW2 (I suspect it was near Moosburg) and she always told me stories of how "Tante Ju's" would come flying in from the Eastern Front bring home wounded soldiers. Some of the planes came landing in with smoking engines or an engine out and bullet holes all over.

I'm not sure what kind of airbase this was since she told me the only planes at this airfield were Ju-52's and Fieseler Storch's - and my grandmother was an "expert" when it came to identifying Luftwaffe airplanes! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Sadly she passed away in 1997.

Anyone know what this is? Were these used to measure airspeed?

These are radiators for the engine oil

Nice pics of this bird!
Couple of years ago I saw this Ju 52 in Holland. I think it's Casa build.

This is the Museum in Munich. I was there about four years ago with my lady.

The Museum also has a few other LW aircraft and a V2.

I'll try to find my pics and post.

Our meals in Munich were Chinese or Pizza. The hotel breakfast was huge! Cheese, ham and eggs!

Couldn't find a German restaurant...

Munich is a beautiful town.

I love going to Munich. I'm planning on visiting the auto museum of the Deutsches Museum sometime soon. Glad you had a great time with your significant other in this city. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
