1941 Junkers Ju-87R-2 Tropical Stuka
The 1941 Junkers Ju-87R-2 Tropical Stuka is one of two surviving Stukas in the world. The plane revolutionized military aviation and military warfare with blitzkrieg tactics of fast, aggressive dive-bombing to support the quick advancement of German ground troops, and the Museum's Stuka is displayed in a steep dive.
The Stuka Has Landed!
For a limited time, see this rare aircraft from a new angle. The Stuka has been lowered to the Museum floor for cleaning and an assessment including 3-D scanning. To protect the aircraft, the Stuka is visible but not directly accessible. This project is scheduled to end Feb. 23, but dates and visibility are subject to change.
