Product Description

Hobby Master  Junkers JU-52 Iberia Airlines, Reg No  EC-AAJ 1941 1/144 scale diecast metal and plastic parts.  Fully assembled. HA9003

The Ju-52 first flew in 1930 as a single engine civil aircraft. Before long it was given two more engines and designated Ju-52/3m (German - drei motoren - "three engines"). The 3-engine aircraft was originally designed as a 17 passenger airliner. The principal user was Lufthansa that flew in Europe, Asia and South America. In the mid 1930’s a military version was produced and the Ju-52 became one of the most reliable transport aircraft. The Ju-52 saw service with military and civilian air fleets well into the 1980s.
D-ALYL was a Ju-52/3M ge c/n5180 named “Hans Loeb” delivered to Lufthansa in 1935. The XI Olympiad Games were held in Berlin in 1936 so prior to this event the aircraft was painted with the Olympic rings. In 1937 the aircraft was operated by OELAG an Austrian airline and registered as OE-LAR “Linke Crawford”. In January 1939 the aircraft returned to Lufthansa and again became D-ALYL “Hans Loeb”. In August 1939 the aircraft was taken over by the Luftwaffe as NG+VY and later changed to 17+RV.
In 1929 Iberia Airlines merged with another state own airline. In May 1935 LAPE (Líneas Aéreas Postales Españolas) Company was created it was taken over by the military in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War. Since the name Iberia was still registered the airline began to fly in Nationalist-held territory eventually becoming a purely domestic airline. EC-AAJ was a former DLH (Deutsche Lufthansa) aircraft D-AVUL “Bruno Rodschinka” acquired by Iberia in February 1941 and named “Guadal Quivir”. One month later the aircraft was written off at Son Bonet Mallorca without fatalities.
