Photographer's Remark

F-AZJU moments before touchdown after a slow but wonderful performance at the Airshow Lelystad 2004. During restoration it was determined that this is not a real CASA 352L, but a German-built Junkers Ju-52/3M fuselage (cn 24?), assembled by CASA as CASA 352L cn 103, using CASA-built wings. It served with the Spanish AF as T.2B-212 until 1976, when it was sold as G-BECL. Its current owners, Amicale Jean Baptiste Salis, acquired this venerable aircraft in 1990, and they still operated it at airshows by 2018!
