Interesting shot, JB. That engine looks huge sitting on the front of that plane. Bet it was a noisy, rough ride with that thing right in front of you.

Air travel has come a long way hasn't it?

And that was from an era when people actually dressed up to travel.

I gather that this was at the Smithsonian. The Junkers was similar to the Ford. However the Junkers saw more action I think both civilally and militarily.

Nice capture. Aircraft have always been a love of mine. Hopefully I'll get to take some pics using my new hobby of one of my favorite subjects.

When I say similar I mean the skeletal structure and the outer shell. Kind of like a tin roof off of a barn or something. The Ju52 was a little more advanced and had less drag.

Indeed Patrick, it was taken in the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum near Washington's Dulles International Airport in northern Virgina. This is a new museum hosting a large number of aircraft which could not be displayed at the original A&S Museum on the National Mall.
