'...virtually no original German planes remained from either World War I or World War II.' Der Spiegel explains. They were all destroyed in 'de-militarisation' programmes after the second War. Why? Germany was hardly going to rise from the ruins and start flying them about, now was it?
Anyway, the Military History museum in Berlin is raising a Stuka from the Baltic seabed. 'The Junkers Ju 87 "Sturzkampfbomber," .... with its trademark siren, known as
"Jericho trumpets," blaring as the aircraft hurtled down to its target.'
They look extraordinarily modern for 1940; just look at those sophisticated wings.
This is Italo Balbo's Savoia-Marchetti SM.55X
flying boat , also looking good, from the same period.
