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.

many that were pressed into service by the Nazi government when they came into
power. It now belonged to Sanitäts-Flugbereitschaften 3 "Sanitary Evacuation Unit 3"
and displayed the Red Cross to show it was a non-combatant aircraft. This aircraft as
well as others were responsible for transporting wounded soldiers and were referred to
as Sanitäts Ju-52s. In April 1942 D-TABX crashed after a mid-air collision near
