The Junkers-52 [Ant 'Ju'] transport plane - may 1940

The Ju-52 could carry 11-14 fully equipped airbornes or air-landing troops. This Ju-52 made an emergency landing on a road between Rotterdam and Zwijndrecht [Island of Ysselmonde]. It was camouflaged. About 500 of these planes had been assigned to the Dutch front. More than half of them would be utterly destroyed by the Dutch airforce, AAA and ground fire.
