Junkers F13: Just the very FIRST.

Junkers F.13: Just the very FIRST.

The F13 is,without doubt, one of the real trendsetting aircrafts in the aviation history,the first all-metal transport aircraft ever made with a first flight in 1919!!.It’s a very advanced single engine monoplane with duraluminium construction covered with the usual Junkers’ corrugated “skin”.
Sadly the availability of cheap WW1 surplus aircrafts and the restrictions imposed to Germany mitigated somewhat their true impact in comercial aviation.They were,anyway, produced in serious numbers and used worldwide with total satisfaction.
