Junkers Ju-60 / Ju-160

Junkers Ju 60

The Junkers Ju 60 was a single engine airliner built in prototype form in Germany in the early 1930s.

It was designed to meet a requirement issued by the Reich Transport Ministry for a German-built equivalent to the Lockheed Vega with which to equip Deutsche Luft Hansa. 

Junkers Ju 160

The Junkers Ju 160 was a German single engine, low-wing six-seat passenger transport aircraft developed from the Ju 60 and targeted at the same fast airliner market as the Heinkel He 70 and the Lockheed Model 9 Orion.

The Deutsche Lufthansa fleet of 21 aircraft began operations in 1935 and continued until the start of World War II.

Including prototypes, 47 Ju 160s were produced.
