Ju52 -- Iron Annie
Digital Art - Digital Art Print
Every cloud has a silver lining and I guess these guys were glad to break through. Another in the present series of Vintage Air Transport - the venerable Junkers 52 - affectionately known as 'Tante Ju' or 'Iron Annie' by thousands of Luftwaffe crews. Close on 5,000 were built and they served in the most arduous of conditions in all combat areas in WW2 - most spectacularly in the paratroop assault on Crete and the attempted air re-supply of Stalingrad. Three were still in service with the Swiss Air Force until the 1980's.
