Description


You are bidding on a BEAUTIFUL and VERY RARE set of WW2 German Luftwaffe Lehrbild Weapon Training Slides!  This was used ONLY on the Dornier Do17z Bomber and Night Fighter Aircraft!  This was recovered at wars end from a former factory worker. 

 

The Dornier Do 17, is a twin-engined light bomber produced by Dornier Flugzeugwerke for the German Luftwaffe during World War II. Designed in the early 1930s as a Schnellbomber (“fast bomber”) intended to be fast enough to outrun opposing aircraft, the lightly built craft had a twin tail and “shoulder wing”. Sometimes referred to as the Fliegender Bleistift (“flying pencil”), it was popular among its crews due to its handling, especially at low altitude, which made the Do 17 harder to hit than other German bombers.

The Do 17 made its combat debut in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War, operating in the Condor Legion in various roles. Along with the Heinkel He 111 it was the main bomber type of the German air arm in 1939–1940. The Dornier was used throughout the early war, and saw action in significant numbers in every major campaign theatre as a front line aircraft until the end of 1941, when its effectiveness and usage was curtailed as its bomb load and range were limited.

Production of the Dornier ended in mid-1940, in favour of the newer and more powerful Junkers Ju 88. The successor of the Do 17 was the much more powerful Dornier Do 217, which started to appear in strength in 1942. Some remaining Do 17s continued in various Luftwaffe roles until the end of the war, as a glider tug, research, and trainer aircraft. A considerable number were sent to other Axis nations, with few surviving the war. The last was scrapped in Finland.

 

 Made of Gelatin or Nitrate, this set is in EXCELLENT used condition.  Though there are some slight marks and wear, it is 98% COMPLETE!  Covering the weapon systems, it contains approx. total of 50 individual images and diagrams.  These were used for presentation purposes, and were replicated in some of the handbooks that are available (though most of these images, I have never seen before).  As these are hard to photograph, I have only shown a few examples in the auction listing.  As only ONE Do17z aircraft survived the war, this set is EXCEEDINGLY rare!  Would make a SUPERB addition to any display, collection, or restoration project!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
