This CASA 352L is a licence built version of Junkers Ju-52 WW2 Luftwaffe Transport Aircraft. It is operated by Amicale Jean-Baptiste Salis in France and registered F-AZJU, and is seen here flying at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford during the Flying Legends Airshow 2015.

• Aircraft Type: Junkers Ju52
• Operator: Amicale Jean Baptiste SALIS
• Year of Manufacture: 1943
• Powered by: x3 ENMASA BETA3 750 CV’s
• Colour Scheme: Luftwaffe splinter camouflage

In 1931 the German engineer Hugo Junkers designed the Ju52 the prototype of a single engine civil transport aircraft, covered with corrugated metal sheets. This aircraft had an important internal volume but was lacking an effective payload. With the addition of two engines on the wing, the Ju-52 was born. With a payload of 1800kg. The Ju52 was intensively used by the Luftwaffe. Equipped with wheels, skis, or even floats it was the backbone of the military transport. Troup transporter, para-dropper, used to supply the army from the eastern Russian steps to the Libyan Desert. This Ju52 is one of the first CASA 352s built in Spain. The fuselage was manufactured in Germany by Junkers and the wings by CASA in 1943.The fuselage was sent to Spain with thirty others, to join the assembly line. After decommission the Ju52 was acquired by a British Movie company. In 1990 she was acquired by Amicale Jean Baptiste Salis and meticulously restored by the Amicale team.

Air France Flight 447 was a scheduled airline flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on 1 June 2009, killing all 216 passengers and 12 aircrew. This BBC documentary was produced almost a year BEFORE the black boxes were recovered, and it ACCURATELY predicted the primary cause of the air crash as pilot error.
On 27 May 2011, the BEA released an update on its investigation, describing the history of the flight as recorded by the flight data recorder. At 3 hour 55 minutes absolute time, the captain gave his seat to the 2nd co-pilot and went out of the cockpit to rest. At 4 hours 6 minutes absolute time, the pilot warned the cabin crew that they were about to enter an area of turbulence. 4 minutes later, the pilots turned the plane slightly to the left and decreased its speed to 0.8 Mach due to increased turbulence.
At 4 hours 10 minutes and 5 seconds absolute time, the autopilot and the auto-thrust systems disengaged. The pilot made a left nose-up input, as the plane began rolling to the right. The plane’s stall warning sounded twice. 10 seconds later, the plane’s recorded airspeed dropped sharply from 275 knots to 60 knots. The plane’s angle of attack increased, and the plane started to climb. The left-side instruments then recorded a sharp rise in airspeed to 215 knots. This change was not displayed by the Integrated Standby Instrument System until a minute later (the right-side instruments were not recorded). The pilot continued making nose-up inputs, and at around 4 hours 11 minutes into the flight, the plane had climbed to its maximum altitude of around 38,000 feet. There, its angle of attack was 16 degrees. At 4 hours 11 minutes 40 seconds, the captain re-entered the cockpit. The angle of attack had then reached 40 degrees, and the plane had descended to 35,000 feet. The stall warnings stopped, as all airspeed indications were now considered invalid due to the high angle of attack. Roughly 20 seconds later, the pilot decreased the plane’s pitch slightly, air speed indications became valid and the stall warning sounded again. From there until the end of the flight, the angle of attack never dropped below 35 degrees.
The recordings stopped at 4 hours 14 minutes and 28 seconds absolute time. At that point, the plane’s ground speed was 107 knots, and it was descending at 10,912 feet per minute. During its descent the plane had turned more than 180 degrees to the right to a compass heading of 170 degrees. The plane was stalled during its entire 3 minute 30 second descent from 38,000 feet.

It has been suggested recently that the AirAsia Flight QZ8501 met its lethal fate in almost the same manner as AF447.

Demain, Elizabeth II fera le voyage jusqu’à Toulouse pour visiter les hangars de l’Aérospatiale…
A ce propos, le dernier Airbus en date, l’A380, qui sera le plus gros appareil commercial du monde, commence d’être assemblé à Toulouse…
Pour ce faire, les pièces arrivant de toute l’Europe, il a fallu imaginer un système de transport unique, sur mesure, qui a nécessité de refaire des routes, d’élargir ici ou là pour assurer son acheminement dans les meilleures conditions…

Public domain film from the FAA, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

There is a broadband hum in the vocal frequencies of this film which I cannot completely remove.

The Lockheed Constellation (“Connie”) is a propeller-driven, four-engined airliner built by Lockheed Corporation between 1943 and 1958 at Burbank, California. 856 were built in numerous models, all with a triple-tail design and dolphin-shaped fuselage and most powered by four 18-cylinder Wright R-3350s. The Constellation was used as a civil airliner and as a military and civil air transport, seeing service in the Berlin Airlift and the Biafran airlift. It was the presidential aircraft for Dwight D. Eisenhower…

Design and development
Initial studies

Lockheed had been working on the L-044 Excalibur, a four-engine pressurized airliner, since 1937. In 1939 Trans World Airlines, at the instigation of major stockholder Howard Hughes, requested a 40-passenger transcontinental airliner with 3,500 mi (5,630 km) range—well beyond the capabilities of the Excalibur design. TWA’s requirements led to the L-049 Constellation, designed by Lockheed engineers including Kelly Johnson and Hall Hibbard. Willis Hawkins, another Lockheed engineer, maintains that the Excalibur program was purely a cover for the Constellation.

Development of the Constellation

The Constellation’s wing design was close to that of the P-38 Lightning, differing mostly in size. The triple-tail kept the aircraft’s height low enough to fit in existing hangars, while features included hydraulically boosted controls and a de-icing system used on wing and tail leading edges. The aircraft had a top speed of over 375 mph (600 km/h), faster than that of a Japanese Zero fighter, a cruise speed of 340 mph (550 km/h), and a service ceiling of 24,000 ft (7,300 m)…

With the onset of World War II, the TWA aircraft entering production were converted to an order for C-69 Constellation military transport aircraft, with 202 aircraft intended for the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). The first prototype (civil registration NX25600) flew on January 9, 1943, a short ferry hop from Burbank to Muroc Field for testing. Edmund T. “Eddie” Allen, on loan from Boeing, flew left seat, with Lockheed’s own Milo Burcham as copilot. Rudy Thoren and Kelly Johnson were also on board…

The C-69 was mostly used as a high-speed, long-distance troop transport during the war…

After World War II the Constellation came into its own as a fast civil airliner. Aircraft already in production for the USAAF as C-69 transports were finished as civil airliners, with TWA receiving the first on 1 October 1945. TWA’s first transatlantic proving flight departed Washington, DC, on December 3, 1945, arriving in Paris on December 4 via Gander and Shannon.

Trans World Airlines transatlantic service started on February 6, 1946 with a New York-Paris flight in a Constellation. On June 17, 1947 Pan American World Airways opened the first ever scheduled round-the-world service with their L-749 Clipper America. The famous flight “Pan Am 1” operated until 1982.

As the first pressurized airliner in widespread use, the Constellation helped to usher in affordable and comfortable air travel. Operators of Constellations included TWA, Eastern Air Lines, Pan American World Airways, Air France, BOAC, KLM, Qantas, Lufthansa, Iberia Airlines, Panair do Brasil, TAP Portugal, Trans-Canada Air Lines (later renamed Air Canada), Aer Lingus, VARIG, Cubana de Aviación and Línea Aeropostal Venezolana…


Sleek and powerful, Constellations set a number of records. On April 17, 1944, the second production C-69, piloted by Howard Hughes and TWA president Jack Frye, flew from Burbank, California, to Washington, D.C., in 6 hours and 57 minutes..

On September 29, 1957 a TWA L-1649A flew from Los Angeles to London in 18 hours and 32 minutes..

Airbus’ new military transport aircraft, the A400M Atlas, is scheduled for delivery to the French air force in time for Bastille Day on July 14.

The heavy cargo and troop transport plane is designed to compete with the smaller Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules and larger airlifters like the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. The A400M combines the ability of the C-130 to land on a variety of airfields with the carrying power of the C-17, which cannot land on unpaved airstrips.

The A400M is longer than the C-130J and has a larger wingspan.

It can carry nearly twice as much cargo in its cargo hold, which is wider and taller than the C-130J’s.

The A400M can carry one Chinook helicopter or two light armored vehicles, for example, while the C-130J can only carry a smaller Blackhawk or two Humvees.

Airbus’ new airlifter also has a significantly longer range when carrying the same payload as the C-130J.

The A400M will allow France to deliver outsize and heavy equipment closer to the point of attack, thus avoiding the need for vulnerable convoys to haul equipment from a port or paved airstrip.
According to Reuters, France is one of seven European NATO nations that developed the A400M at a cost of 20 billion euros. France has ordered 50 A400Ms.
