On August 18, Lufthansa for the first time ever will broadcast live from aboard a flight on the beloved and revered Junkers Ju52, affectionately known as ‘Tante Ju’, or ‘Aunt Ju’.

In order to watch you’ll need to use this Facebook link that will contain the broadcast.    As it stands now, it is scheduled to begin at 8:30a Central European Time, which makes it a 2:30a start time on the East Coast in the USA.  The flight is scheduled to depart at 9:00a CET, conditions permitting.

I assume there will be a video archive of the even but I think the ‘wow factor’ will be to watch it live as it happens.

I had my chance at a flight last year in Hamburg, but the only 20 minute thunderstorm of an otherwise perfectly sunny day ruined those plans as the flight was canceled and later flights were already booked up.

Considering most people will never get a chance to fly aboard her due to her limited schedule, this simulcast may be the next best thing.
