This Ju-52 had an eventful past before it found its retirement in the Technikmuseum Speyer. In 1940 it brought a load of supplies for German troops to Norway and had to land on a frozen lake. There was not enough fuel for a flight back to Germany, so it was left behind on the lake. It finally sunk to the bottom when the ice melted in the Spring. There it spend 46 years lying 75 meters below the water surface until it was salvaged in 1986. Carries code VB-JA on the other side.
