If you have been spotting at FRA, you may have noted the name of the village Zeppelinheim. The airport opened to aircraft and airships in July 1936 but its two huge airship hangars were already demolished in 1940. The Fw 200 Condor, D-ADHR Saarland, dates the picture in July 1938 at the earliest. The second Ju 52 is D-ALUN Kurt Wintgens and the leftmost aircraft is a Ju 86 which can only be D-AJUU Vogelsberg.

The L73 was a largish, luxurious biplane airliner equipped for night flying. The eight passengers seats could be converted to four bunk beds. Two L73bs, D-960 and D-961, were delivered to DLH and employed on a Berlin - Königsberg night service from 1927. They were upgraded to L73c standard with different engines in 1928 but D-961 crashed on 28 May 1928. Two more planes, construction numbers 10118 and 10119, were built for DLH in 1930 and sold to Bulgaria in 1931. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich

This red Ju 52 was Hermann Goering's personal aircraft at the time. Goering stopped by here after an Adriatic holiday and talks in Belgrade. Aircraft later renamed after Kurt Wolff, another WWI ace. Later GC-AF in the Luftwaffe. Crashed and written off the Lufthansa books in 1942. Photo from: Fortepan

The Merkur was widely used by Deutsche Luft Hansa, which had some 30 examples flying for it at one time. The type was also exported to Brazil, China, Colombia, Japan, and Switzerland. This replica was built in Hungary, painted in Hamburg and is one of the standout exhibits at this very interesting museum.

Gressholmen, a small island in the Oslofjord, was Norway's international airport until 1939. The sole example of the Ro V Rocco first flew on 27 May 1927. The covert military Severa company and Lufthansa flew it off it against the Dornier Do R Superwal and it served on the Travemünde - Copenhagen - Gothenburg - Oslo route in May and June 1928.

Another interesting puzzle. The Ju 52 production list quickly revealed the aircraft name, but also that Lufthansa had four Iron Annies named Olaf Bielenstein between 1935 and 1945. The source says that in the background is a 'German naval station', implying a wartime shot. However, a look under the wing rules out D-AVAJ, D-AIAG and D-ASHB, so this must be the prewar incarnation, D-APOR. She was photographed on floats at Oslo - Gressholmen airport in 1936. To Syndicato Condor as PP-CBF in 1938. To Argentine air force in 1946 as T-155. To Argentine ministry of Agriculture in 1951 as LV-ZBH and even returned to service as late as 1956 - much the same career as D-APEF. Photo from: National Museum of Denmark

The last month of peace. Photo almost certainly taken on 2 August 1939 when Lufthansa introduced the Ju 90 on the Berlin - Amsterdam - London route, and some Dutch journalists were given a ride from Schiphol to Croydon and back. On 10 August Mecklenburg violated British airspace restrictions and overflew RAF Manston. By the end of the month regular Lufthansa flights to London had ceased.

This photo was probably taken on 2 August 1939, the day the Ju 90 entered service on the Berlin - Amsterdam - London route. By the end of the month regular Lufthansa flights to London had ceased. If the big Ju 90 continued on the Amsterdam service at all, the photo cannot have been taken much later as the departing Fokker C.X does not wear the wartime orange triangle insignia. The following winter D-ASND was commandeered as BG-GX. Later coded J4-HH, it was destroyed in 1943. Photo from: Nationaal Archief (Netherlands)

Another Super Whale at Schellingwoude. The flying boat was on its way from the Dornier factory in Friedrichshafen to Norderney, following the Rhine and the coast, and reportedly landed for weather reasons. Photo from: Amsterdam City Archives

The second Ju 60 - and perhaps the only one completed. The wing skin was still corrugated metal and the type was some 75 km/h (47 mph) slower than its Heinkel rival the He 60 Blitz. Later D-UPAL, the airframe was named Pfeil (arrow). Photo from: Nationaal Archief (Netherlands)

Presumably the roll-out of the second Fw 200 Condor in October 1937, but we are not sure. Westfalen saw Lufthansa service but was requisitioned for long-range reconnaissance work in the summer of 1939. Photo from: Nationaal Archief (Netherlands)
