You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a 100% original German Luftwaffe Aircraft Ansaugluftleitung (Air Intake Cooling Tube), 88.9607-22, as removed from a wartime Ju88 Bomber Aircraft!
The Junkers Ju 88 was a World War II German Luftwaffe twin-engine, multi-role aircraft. Designed by Hugo Junkers’ company in the mid-1930s to be a so-called Schnellbomber which would be too fast for any of the fighters of its era to intercept, it suffered from a number of technical problems during the later stages of its development and early operational roles, but became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war. Affectionately known as “The Maid of all Work” (Mädchen für Alles), the Ju 88 proved to be suited to almost any role. Like a number of other Luftwaffe bombers, it was used successfully as a bomber, dive bomber, night fighter, torpedo bomber, reconnaissance aircraft, heavy fighter, and even as a flying bomb during the closing stages of conflict.
Despite its protracted development, the aircraft became one of the Luftwaffe’s most important assets. The assembly line ran constantly from 1936 to 1945, and more than 16,000 Ju 88s were built in dozens of variants, more than any other twin-engine German aircraft of the period. Throughout the production, the basic structure of the aircraft remained unchanged.
This hatch was located on various places on the fuselage and wings of the. It allowed for easy access to the weapons charging system, oxygen filler tanks, hydraulics, etc.
Made of magnesium and aluminum, this Cooling Tube System is in VERY NICE used condition! Though it does feature some marks and bends…there is NO major damage or corrosion, and damage, it retains 95% of its original shape! Mounted in the wing, it features a prominent Ju88 part number, indicating, 88.9607-22. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!
