The Junkers Ju 60, which first flew in 1932, was a single-engined, low-wing monoplane in the same class as the Lockheed Orion highspeed airliner. Only two Ju 60s were built, but in 1934 an improved version, the Ju 160, made its appearance. Forty-eight Ju 160s were built, entering service with Lufthansa during 1935-36. As well as operating on domestic
routes, the Ju 160s also flew on the Breslau-Prague-Munich route. Most were commandeered by the Luftwaffe on the outbreak of World War II and were widely used for communications and training.

The Avid Flyer and Kitfox experimentals use these same flaperons.
As I read these old books I am looking up info on the planes and other historical references to give the experience more depth and life.

Junkers Ju 160 1935
|Mac, Hunter, 18.10.2008|
I found and am reading an old paperback written by Heinz Knoke about his days as a German fighter pilot in WWII. "I Flew for the Fuhrer". Copyright '53, published in 1967.
In his early training days in the '40s he and some other students were flying in one of these to a new training base when the engine stopped and they crashed. Tail number "CEKE". As I read these old books I am looking up info on the planes and other historical references to give the experience more depth and life.

I'm trying to find reference material on the cockpit panel for the Ju-160 for Flight Sim. Any good photos can be e-mailed and any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
