Target: DESSAU GERMANY Industry Aviation (83 aircraft) - (51.8353, 12.2068)

Founded in Dessau in 1888 by Hugo Junkers as a water heater manufacturer. During World War I, it produced the first all-metal skin aircraft, the Junkers J1. In 1917 Junkers-Fokker AG was founded and an airfield was built near the site of the factory. After World War I, the company was renamed Junkers Flugzeugwerke. All major Junkers aircraft up to the Junkers Ju60 were built and first flown from the Junkers facilities at Dessau. At the beginning of WWII the production of aircraft was transferred out of Dessau to decentralized facilities. On 21th April 1945 Dessau and the Junkers Flugzeugwerke were occupied by the First U.S. Army. In September 1945 the plant was transferred to the Soviets who dismantled and removed the machinery as war reparations.
