    first, hello to all on this forum.

    This is my first post so apologize for possible errors and my english.

    I found this part of the engine in the yard and all I know is that it is passed from German airports at the end of ww2.I would like to know what is the engine and from which aircraft?Cylinder seems very large for a small aircraft?I appreciate any attempt...

    Hi,
    It looks like it came off a BMW 132 used on the Junkers JU52.

    Cheers,
    Sander

    Yep, wanted to say the same thing. Also used in many other types, so fairly common at the time.

    This part of the engine brought my grandfather 1944 from airfield ilandza, vojvodina, yugoslavia.This airport was once under attack.
