You are bidding on a SUPERB 1941 1:2000000 German Fliegerkarte (Pilot Map) as used by both Fighter Pilots and Bomber crews for navigation. This map is the VERY RARE cloth Version, and is titled “Luft-Navigationskarte in Merkatorprojektion” (Air Navigational Map in Mercator Projection), Blatt Deutschland, and measures a VERY NICE 33″ x 47″ (84cm x 120cm) size.
This map allowed the pilot to properly calculate his flight path. It is made heavy paper and plastic.
Made of paper that has been sewed onto a flexible plastic backing, this map is in EXCELLENT condition for its age. It measures a approx. 3 feet x 4 feet in size, and covers Eastern Europe. Blatt Vorderasien (Middle East) is written at the top, and overall it includes the Northern and central part of Eastern Europe, including Russia, Turkey, Caucus, Iraq, Iran, and parts of Saudi Arabia and Egypt. It features 2 black printed Luftwaffe Eagles on the top, and shows various locations of lakes, seas, towns (eg. Stalingrad), villages, cities, and elevations. Also features longitude and latitude degree markings and Luftwaffe Pilot Map grid. The bottom indicates, “Stand der Bodenorganisation 21.5.1941”, (Stateof the Ground Organization05/21/1941). It remains in SUPERB used condition, with slight marks and wear.
A VERY RARE and FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or simply as a conversation piece!

——————- 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.
