Fallschirmjager waiting for the sprung signal aboard Tante Ju.

Tante Ju or Aunti Junker was an endearing term created by the Fallschirmjager for the Junkers Ju 52 general cargo plane. The Ju 52 we are in still had the parachute benches and static line, this to a Fallschirmjager reenactor is  our Graceland.

I want to thank Don Calder and the WWII Warbirds Museum in Virginia Beach for being very welcoming hosts to us guys from the Midwest.
