The Ju-52 first flew in 1930 as a single engine civil aircraft. Before long it was given two
more engines and designated Ju-52/3m (German - drei motoren - "three engines"). The
3-engine aircraft was originally designed as a 17 passenger airliner. The principal user
was Lufthansa that flew in Europe, Asia and South America. In the mid 1930’s a military
version was produced and the Ju-52 became one of the most reliable transport aircraft.
The Ju-52 saw service with military and civilian air fleets well into the 1980s.



D-ALYL was a Ju-52/3M ge c/n5180 named “Hans Loeb” delivered to Lufthansa in 1935.
The XI Olympiad Games were held in Berlin in 1936 so prior to this event the aircraft
was painted with the Olympic rings. In 1937 the aircraft was operated by OELAG an
Austrian airline and registered as OE-LAR “Linke Crawford”. In January 1939 the aircraft
returned to Lufthansa and again became D-ALYL “Hans Loeb”. In August 1939 the
aircraft was taken over by the Luftwaffe as NG+VY and later changed to 17+RV.
