Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Manufactured from 1932 to 1945, an aircraft known as the "Junkers Ju 52" revolutionized military aviation by coupling elements of traditional bombers with those of conventional transport aircraft. Its lengthy history witnessed numerous evolutionary advances on the design of the plane, from its initial runs as a single-engine cargo plane through successive runs as a two-engine plane - an enhancement that dramatically boosted safety and reliability. The documentary Ju 52: Aircraft and Legend details the history of this craft from its inception to the end of its usage.
