Default Junkers.de, by Bernd Junkers, grandson of Hugo Junkers

This site's coverage is summarized directly from the site:

"Hugo Junkers in the InterNet
The project Junkers.de is to inform comprehensively about the life and work Hugo Junkers and give a view to the person of this great German inventor and industrialist. With Junkers.de, Bernd Junkers, a grandchild of Hugo Junkers, would like to share true memories of his grandfather."

The site address is:

http://www.junkers.de

Directly from the home page are the following articles:

All airplanes [ J1 to Ju 160 ] - Over 50 types of aircraft between 1915 and 1933 were built in Dessau under the direction of Hugo Junkers
and presented in brief histories with photos.

Advertisement and Corporate Identity - Covers Hugo Junkers philosophy on advertising his company. Includes sample advertisements.

Births of a legend: The Ju 52 - Brief history with photos.

At the beginning stands the "sheet metal donkey": The Junkers F 13 - Brief history with photos.

Flying wings as vision of the future - Covers briefly Junkers designs, including the J 1000 and G 38, that were close to being all wing aircraft. Includes drawings.

Now, working off of the top bar of major topics on the home page, we have:

Aircraft

All types of aircraft in the overview - Same coverage as noted above for J1 to Ju 160.

Success model and fate airplane: The Ju 52 - Different article from above. Includes 3 color photos.

People connection from above: Air traffic

From the first flight tests to the airliner: Air traffic

+++ the Atlantic crossing of the W 33 "Bremen" +++ - Article.

Progress in capacity and comfort: Innovations

- Pressurized cabin makes stratosphere flight possible

- The idea: The cantilever complete metal low-wing aircraft

- Connection of landing flaps with ailerons and trim

- The trim tank saves fuel

Working off of the left hand menu for Aircraft:

Ju 52 - 4 articles.

Air traffic - 6 articles.

Innovations - 4 articles, plus photos.

Ju XX

All aircraft types - Repeat of the J1 to Ju 160 section.

Visions

Flying wings as vision of the future - Previously covered.

The step into the jet era - and pre-working to the supersonic flight - Brief commentary on Jumo 004. Claim of Ju 287 as predecessor to B-47 & B-52. Illustrations of Jumo 004. Photo of Ju 287.

Life and work of Hugo Junkers - Articles covering Junkers personal history and philosophy.

Engines - Brief article. Some photos, but not much of aircraft interest. This site section may still be unfinished.


Of note on this site is the almost total absense of material pertaining to Junkers combat aircraft and engines in WW II.

Regards,
Richard
