MaxSez: There are 3 Vintage Tri-Motor Legendary Aircraft Features in the Closed 2018 Archives. They are similar in design and a few are still flying today. I’d like One (1) of them reconsidered and entered into the IF Inventory by popular demand of those who dare!
There configuration, characteristics and performing are similar. There performance data is available in the Archive when searched by Type.
These roaring 20’s models are among the first “Trash Haulers” in both commercial and military serves, they are; The US “Ford-5AT”, the Dutch “Fokker FV11 and the German “Junker JU-52.”
(I prefer the Junker JU-52 because of its Long Service Life, Ruggedness & it’s appearance on every front in Europe during World War II.
(The Film, “Where Eagles Dare”, shows it off in the opening scene’s.)
What your choice, no vote on this one, just your pleasure (comment) or ♥️ will rule the day. A Votable Feature will soon follow! (Sorry only 1 photo Permitted)
