Artist's Description

Nikon D80, Nikkor AF-S DX ED 18-200mm VR lens at f4.5, 1/200sec, ISO 100, 18mm, Kodak EasyShare, 07.26.2007.

Looking similar the Junkers Ju 52 was almost one-third larger and heavier than the Ford Trimotor.
The aircrafts corrugated metal skin and ugly exterior, the Ju 52 was not a beauty, but this aircraft was loved and fondly known to airmen as Tante Ju (Aunt Ju). Although designed as a pioneering airliner, the Ju 52 was also a military aircraft, serving the Luftwaffe as a bomber, transporter, trainer and minesweeper.
Ju 52s were manufactured in France, Hungary and Spain after the war.
This example of the Ju 52 displayed at the National Museum of the USAF, Dayton, Ohio, USA.
