Beschrijving:
The Junkers F.24kay named "Düsseldorf" was damaged beyond repair in an accident near Glindow, Germany. Both pilots were killed.
The airplane was originally built as a three-engine Junkers G.24. In June 1929 the airplane was converted to a single-engine F.24. In 1936 a new type of engine the Daimler-Benz DB 600 V12 piston engine was installed to be test flown on the Junkers F.24. In 1938 a DB 601 engine was installed, to be test flown for 200 hours.
During one of these test flights an engine fire occurred. An emergency descent was initiated from 1500 m altitude and the burning plane made a forced landing.
Both pilots received fatal injuries.
