Lufthansa will exhibit its two historic aircraft Junkers Ju 52 and Lockheed Super Star in Frankfurt or Munich as a static display. CEO Carsten Spohr said that these should be honored on the occasion of the 100th anniversary. Preparations for this will begin this year.

Deutsche Luft Hansa AG was founded on January 6, 1926 through the merger of Deutscher Aero Lloyd and Junkers Luftverkehr. The first flight of the new airline followed on April 6, 1926. Today's Lufthansa is not the legal successor of the company founded in 1926.

This was brought into being in 1953, initially under the name Aktiengesellschaft für Luftverkehrsbedarf. About a year later, the company name was changed to Deutsche Lufthansa AG and flight operations officially began on April 1, 1955.

The Lockheed L-1694A Superstar and the JU 52 D-AQUI are currently stored at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport. The "Superstar" is broken down into individual parts, while the JU 52 is almost completely assembled. The aircraft was built in 1936 in the Junkers factory in Dessau, the Super Star had its maiden flight in 1956. The vintage propellers are among the most distinctive and historically significant aircraft in aviation history.

On Monday, October 17th, the newest aircraft in the Lufthansa fleet will pay a brief visit to its famous predecessors. The first Boeing B787 in Lufthansa colors with the registration D-ABPA will make a stopover at Paderborn-Lippstadt Airport in the afternoon as part of the landing training required for the cockpit crews.
