You are bidding on a SUPERB 1940’s 1:4000000 WW2 German Luftwaffe Fliegerkarte (Pilot Map) as used by both Fighter Pilots and Bomber crews for navigation. This map is titled “Luft-Navigationskarte in Kegelprojektion”, and measures a NICE 24″ x 27″ size. This is the RARE Double-Sided Night-Flying version.
This map allowed the pilot to properly calculate his flight path. It is made heavy yellow oilcloth.
Made of yellow oil cloth for night flying, this map is in EXCELLENT condition for its age. It measures approx. 24″ x 27″ in size, and covers all of the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Ireland), with parts of France, Belgium, Germany on one side. Other side depicts Germany, with parts of Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Switzerland, Denmark, and Poland. Titled, “Blatt Nr. 2 (Brit Inseln. Sud.)” & “Blatt Nr. 1 (Deutschland)”. Shows various locations of lakes, seas, towns, villages, cities, and elevations. Also features longitude and latitude degree markings, and the Luftwaffe grid. The bottom indicates a map date of 1940, but was printed in 1942 by the Generalstab der Luftwaffe. Some slight marks and stains due to the age, and a couple of small holes…but remains in SUPERB condition! A VERY RARE and FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or simply as a conversation piece!
