Amicale Jean-Baptiste Salis is a flying collection and museum with more than 50 aircraft, located at the Aerodrome de Cerny in La Ferte-Alais, France. The museum's Junkers Ju-52 is the largest aircraft in the collection and is currently Europe's sole airworthy Junkers Ju 52. A German fuselage, Spanish wings and the French "Tricolore" flag preceding the French registration "F-AZJU" make this a truly European aircraft. Contrary to other, more modern equipped machines of the same type, in which passenger flights have been offered until very recently, this Junkers has a much more basic attire. It comes along with a simple interior and the folding seats in the cabin convey the ambiance of the original troop transporting aircraft from the 1940's.

Junkers Ju 52

The Ju-52 entered service in April 1931 as a troop transport and bomber. During the Spanish Civil War, it ferried troops from Morocco to Spain and dropped some 6,000 tons of bombs. The three-engine Ju-52 served as a 17-passenger airliner for many nations, most famously with the German Lufthansa. Nicknamed "Iron Annie," the Ju 52 was built of strong corrugated metal. For air defense and tactical ground support it was armed with multiple machine guns and was fitted with bomb racks capable of carrying 3,307 lbs of bombs. During WWII, 5,000 Ju-52s served in all fronts in a variety of roles, from troop transport to mine-laying.
