The part is from German Junkers JU52 transport plane operated by Deutsche Lufthansa and was work number 5078 which was named "Rudolf Windisch" and was the deputy Fuhrer Rudolf Hess private aircraft from 1935 until 3rd December 1936 when it crashed into the French Alps.The part was recovered with other items from crash site sometime in the 1980's and comes with 2xA5 laminated information sheets with pictures and there is very little of this aircraft around now these days.
