Photograph from Junkers

Schulz Sportfluzeug

01/31/2012. Remarks by Kees Kort: "Although the name Junkers is printed in the right-hand corner, this Sportfluzeug (Sportsplane) photo does show not a Junkers machine, but a construction of Diplom-Ingenieur Bernhard Schulz, who lived in Dessau where the Junkers firm was located. The plane looks fascinating, surely for 1925 when it was developed.

Not more is known about this machine or its designer, but given the circumstances, it might be possible that Schulz was a Junkers employee and was helped by the firm in designing and building this machine, however, both the aircraft and designer are not mentioned in the book 'Junkers und seine Flugzeuge' (Junkers and his aircraft) (GŁnther Schmitt - Motorbuch - 1986)."
