The only thing more durable than these Junkers Ju 52s are the mountains over which they now fly sightseers.

After a one-hour flight, the working 52 returned. The aircraft, which flies at about 75 mph with flaps extended, seemed to approach in slow motion. When it rolled to a stop, Sennhauser placed a ladder at the cabin door. Two smartly uniformed flight attendants descended, then helped the passengers disembark. They stood chatting and laughing as the pilot shook each hand. “That’s a good airline, huh?” said Sennhauser. “If you shook hands with everyone on a 747, you’d have two days.”
If you define a good airline as one that regards every flight as a celebration, then JU-AIR is indeed top-notch. You can make reservations at its Web site: www.airforcecenter.ch.
