Junkers JU 86.

This aircraft first saw service as a passenger plane with South West Africa Airways. Brought into use as a medium bomber during the Spanish Civil War, it was found to be inadequately armed when faced with modern fighters. In 1939 the Ju 86 was produced as a photo-reconnaisance [sic] machine operating at a maximum height of 41,000 feet, 9000 feet better than a Spitfire could reach.
