I haven't been there since 1969 but I vividly remember the huge flak towers standing out on the skyline whenever you could get a view across the city.

I think there is actually a website dealing with these and other similar structures in Austria but I don't have the address any longer.

I was in Salzburg last May and noticed a few books in (non-specialist) shops about the city in wartime, so maybe local authors have done the same for Vienna.

There was no sign of JV 44 at Salzburg-Maxglan when we drove past the perimeter, I'm afraid!

I would highly recommend the "Heeresgeschichtliche Museum" at Vienna - you could see a Fieseler Fi 156 "Storch", a 8,8 cm Flak, etc ....

Greetings from Austria

The following information is in references to the website The Hanns Klemm Homepage, by Horst Zoeller.

Go to

http://www.junkers.de.vu/

When into the site go down to "German Aviation History" click on this and then select Klemm

(Per Tony's guidance, this site is found through first going to Horst Zoeller's "The Hugo Junkers Homepage" site. The site appears to be of 1998 vintage and doesn't appear to have been updated since. The Homepage notes the following site contents:

Contents

Hanns Klemm's Biography

Development of Klemm Flugzeugbau

Who is who at Klemm?

Klemm Aircraft Types - very detailed listing with histories and technical data

Remaining Klemm Aircraft - listing of remaining Klemm aircraft in:

- Germany
- Austria
- Luxembourg
- England
- Iceland
- Finland

I'm compiling information on museums with Axis WW2 equipment on my site, the Axis History Factbook at http://www.axishistory.com , and I'd appreciate any help with additions (text or photos) or corrections to the material.

The museums section can be found at http://www.axishistory.com/index.php?id=56

Thanks.
