Elegance and Versatility
Junkers Light Aircraft K 16 to A 50 Junior

Lennart Andersson

This book is about all the smaller Junkers types that were designed during the same period as the F 13, G 24, W 34 and Ju 52/3m. The K 16 carried just two passengers, a series of two-seat types for training and private flying started with the T 19. The A 20, developed into the A 35, was produced in great numbers and served in countries all over the world. The majority were military, but the type was also used for pioneering German night airmail services and for many years by the German weather forecast service. The H 21 and S 22 were designed and built for the Soviet Union. The K 47 two-seat fighter was Junkers’ first design that employed smooth metal in place of the corrugated sheet metal that was otherwise typical for all Junkers aircraft. The main customer for that type was China, which had previously acquired a substantial number of the K 53 military version of the A 35. The A 50 Junior, finally, was intended for the emerging private aircraft owner market. It was built in substantial numbers and found buyers in all corners of the world. It became world famous especially for daring long-distance flights made by illustrious aviators, including female pilots such as Marga von Etzdorf.

Pure technical and aviation nostalgia!
