In 1919 a small six-seater aircraft, the Junkers F 13, lifted off from an airfield in Dessau in Germany onits first flight. A few years later, it made commercial sense to develop the F 13 further to meet increasingdemands for more power, capacity and range, and this resulted in the W 33 and W 34 successors,expanded with the K 43 military variant and Ju 46 mail planes. From the mid-1920s into the early 1960s,the W 33/W 34 served in 34 countries on all the world's continents and was used in a multitude of roles. Itwas a real workhorse, not cheap to buy or fast in the air, but weather-resistant, robust and durable. Ournew book is a tribute to this fabulous aircaft.
