Transatlantic airliner that never was At the start of the Second World War, the Junkers aircraft company in Germany was working on a highly ambitious project: the Ju EF 100, a luxurious transatlantic airliner. As World War II evolved, Junkers got increasingly occupied with the production of bombers, leading to the cancellation of this project in 1942. It never got beyond wind tunnel model tests.
This image depicts the elegant Junkers Ju EF 100 as it might have been, had it ever been built and flown. The image was made for Monogram Aviation Publications, for their new book "Jet Planes of the Third Reich, The Secret Projects, vol.2" by Manfred Griehl.
