After being grounded for all of this year due to some minor damage which then resulted in a decision to carryout more thorough maintenance, Tante Ju (D-AQUI) is being prepared to return to active service in June 2017.
Technicians from Lufthansa Technik have been working literally around the clock for the last several months to make sure that all the work is completed to their high expectations so that the Ju 52 can return in better shape than when she was new nearly 80 years ago.
With all this said, her schedule has been announced for the Summer and Fall of 2017 and can be found here. The schedule covers a myriad of flights in Germany as well as some special appearances in Europe to celebrate certain key events. Some flights are already booked up, so don’t wait too long to decide. The link will also allow you to book your flights.
Being the rarest bird in the Lufthansa fleet, a flight aboard Tante Ju would be a feather in any aviation enthusiast’s cap!
