The Junkers Ju 52 Tante Ju (Auntie Ju) was a three seat three engines low wing cantilever monoplane with fixed undercarriage and tail skid all metal corrugated duralumin skin, powered in its original form by a single engine in the nose. The Ju 52 was fitted with Junkers doubled wing, a full span auxiliary flying surface hinged to the wing trailing edge, which provided the aircraft with both ailerons and flaps. Designed primarily as a transport aircraft, the Junkers Ju 52, entered service on the Berlin to London and Berlin to Rome routes in 1932 and eventually formed 85% of Deutsche Lufthansa airline's fleet. In 1934 a military version of the Ju 52 was produced for the Luftwaffe the aircraft was designed as a heavy bomber for a crew of four. Junkers Ju 52/3m is on display at the Royal Air Force Museum in Cosford.
