Ju 87 Stuka

Post by dasboot » 25 Oct 2002 05:21

My favorite German warplane was the Ju 87 Stuka dive bomber. Here are some pictures. Also try this website for the sound of one diving.

Beatiful site

Beatiful site but it is the noise of a real plane or the noise of the model...watch its own 90cc engine! A real monster...

Are there any of these planes still flying? If not when was the last one?

As far as I know there are no flying examples anywhere in the world. I would not have a clue as to when the last one took flight, I would also be interested in knowing this.

I know there is a preserved Stuka at the museum at Hendon, UK.

A Stuka had been rebuilt in Ukraine and flies.

Re: Ju 87 Stuka turbocharger

Hello all,
I purchased this shot on eBay and was interested in its enormous cowling and what looks like a supercharger air intake just aft of the prop. Am I right in thinking that I wonder?

The intake on top of the engine is an oil cooler, IIRC. The supercharger intake is barely visible at the engine side, in front of the coat of arms, under the oil cooler outlet.

Well, it's clearly Ju 87 B, maybe someone more clever could recognize if it is B-1 or B-2. :)

. Getting closer Gresio! Thanks again. I don't have a computer with photoshop at the moment it died, so i'm limited in what I can do to 'lift' this image but I've pushed it as far as I can go to try to find the supercharger intake and think I've found it?

That's it.

Hmmm, I have no access to my books at the moment, but judging from the exhaust pipes, I think your Stuka can be a B-2 or late B-1 variant.

Yes that's the same intake, quite small really. It's hard to imagine them with a Rolls Royce Kestrel engine - that must have been hard for Göring to take!
