    I was there in 84 and it's a great aviation museum . I'd scan some of my photos but my scanner fell out of the house and hit a tree

    Those are the only two complete Stukas. There is one being restored here in Germany to be put into a Museum here.

    They have half a Stuka at a museum about an hour from here but it is in unrestorable condition. I cant wait till they get the 3rd Stuka restored here in Germany.

    There is a better unrestored one in Berlin than one that is near where I live.

    They dont have retractable gear do they..?
    It looks like it just hasn't got the wheel fairings on.
    thanx for all your comments...more to follow later.

    :lol: I was wondering the same thing. I'm gonna make a great leap in logic and guess that alcohol was involved.

    And Adler, if they put the Stuka in a museum, are they allowed to put the Swastika on it? Serious question by the way.

    After I typed that, I double checked... I only saw one version with retractable gear and the engine cowling is different so your probably right.

    If the fairings are just missing, I would think they'd fab some new ones just for display purposes.

    I've seen operational pics where they were removed. Removal was attributed to keeping ice and mud from freezing in the fairing on the Eastern Front.
