Photo of the Junker Ju-52 tri-motor aircraft, registration A-702 HB-HOT.
This Ju-52/3mg4e (the Ju-52 were nicknamed Tante Ju) was built in 1939 and can carry 20 passengers.
The Ju-52 flew both in military and civil capacity in the 1930s and 1940s. This variant is a military where the (original) tailskid was replaced with a wheel.
About 4,845 were built and eight of these are still flight worthy today.
