Haven't downloaded this to take a closer look but first impressions tell me that this is not a Ju-52 but a DC-3 Dakota. This plane seems to have a slightly swept wing which the Ju-52 didn't have but the DC-3 did. Maybe wrong so correct me if I'm wrong

casp3r your are right, it's a DC-3. the distance between the two engines is to small to be a JU52

But I was still wrong though :whine: The Ju-52 has a slightly swept wing as well.

There must be a new set of pictures for Berlin this plane is no longer there. I have looked all over and cannot find it there at Tempelhof.

They have "updated" Germany recently. Updated does not mean, the pics are younger, they just have better resolution.
