Junkers Ju 322

This was a big flying-wing transport glider, built in competition with the Me 321. The RLM insisted that the Ju 322 would be built of wood, a construction technique not used by Junkers since 1918. The RLM ordered 200, but the Ju 322 was cancelled after the prototype proved unstable. The Me 321 was selected for production.

Air Ministry insisted that Junkers, the firm that pioneered the construction of all-metal aircraft, should build the thing entirely out of wood. The result was predictably disastrous!

This gigantic monstrosity was intended to be a tank-carrying assault glider. As if that weren't difficult enough to achieve, the German Air Ministry insisted that Junkers, the firm that pioneered the construction of all-metal aircraft, should build the thing entirely out of wood. The result was predictably disastrous!

Ich bin der Verwandte des Piloten, der das Ju 322 flog und er mir erklärte, dass es unmöglich war, es in der Luft zu erhalten!

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
