I'm just home after seeing Tante Ju (Lufthansas Ju-52) at Stockholm - Bromma
airport. That was a fantastic sight indeed. Especially since at the same time
Daisy (the "Flying Veterans" DC-3) was also parked on the apron. Made it
feel like beeing back in the forties for a day.
I was a little disappointed though when Tante Ju's engins were
started. I had expected some smoke and a different sound. I saw Tante Ju
at Bromma 1986 and as I remembered the engines made a lot more noice
then. Now I understand that you can't have all original parts in the engines
on a 66 year old aircraft but I am wondering, have they changed the engines
completely to more modern engines? Does anybody out there have
any information on that?
Still, Tante Ju is a fantastic piece of flying history. May she fly many years
