Junkers Ju 52/3m "Berlin Tempelhof" de la Lufthansa compagnie aérienne allemande. The aircraft, originally named "Fritz Simon", was taken into Lufthansa service on 10 Avril 1936, et sold to the DNL Airlines norvégien shortly thereafter, on 01 Juillet 1936. Fitted avec floats et marked LN-DAH, this plane flew in coastal regions norvégiens until captured by l’armée allemande in Avril 1940. It was subsequently used as a Wehrmacht troop transport. Après la guerre, the Allies returned the aircraft to Norway, et en 1947 it was "married" to another Ju 52 of the former Luftwaffe allemande which was being scrapped for parts. The airplane has been carrying the Werksnummer 130714 id-number of the military fuselage since.

Retired from service norvégien en 1956, the Ju 52, re-named "Amazonas", flew for the "Transportes Aereos Orientales" équatoriens from 1957 to 1963. For six years after that, the plane rotted away at Quito Airport, until a veteran fighter pilot de la Force Aérienne US discovered the wreck et brought it to the USA en 1969. Another American purchased the plane en 1975 et flew it at several Airshows, until he sold it to Lufthansa. The plane landet at Hamburg-Fuhlsbüttel Airport on 28 Décembre 1984 et it was then carefully restored at the Lufthansa-Werft in Hamburg. The restored plane took its first flight in Avril 1986, which marked the beginning of a new chapter in the life of this experienced Junkers Ju 52.
