Hubcaps and steering stick for the Condor

Next door in Hangar 7, the Condor, which has been restored over a period of two decades, is currently being fully reassembled. The restoration is a joint project of the German Museum of Technology, Airbus, the Deutsche Lufthansa Berlin-Stiftung and Rolls-Royce.

The historic Focke-Wulf Fw 200 “Condor” aircraft is the only surviving example of this type.

Here and there parts are lacking that are no longer available in the original. If possible, replicas made of wood and metal are produced together with the young people from the Fliegerwerkstatt.

Here, the hubcaps are being reproduced from wood.

And sometimes the young people can even work directly on the Condor.

Thank you, Günter Hujer, for allowing us to help with this exciting project.
