Junkers JU 52/3.

The original JU 52 was a single engined civil transport, the later three engined version being designated the JU 52/3m. Both these versions appeared as 15-17 passenger transports in 1930-1932, but from 1934-1935 the aircraft was produced as a bomber for the Luftwaffe. Later it was put into production as a military transport, in which category it served throughout the European War. It first saw action in the Spanish Civil War & was known as ‘Iron Annie’ due to its corrugated fuselage. Altogether about 3500 were built powered by three BMW radial engines with a top speed of 180 mph.
