Baade 152 Survivors


Baade 152, WNr. 152/II-011
Verkehrsmuseum Dresden / Dresden Airport

The fuselage of WNr. 152/II-011 was already finished, when the 152 Programme was stopped. The fuselage was transfered to the NVA Air Force Base at Rothenburg later, where it was used as a storage cabin. Since 1984 the fuselage was unused.

In January 1993 the Verkehrsmuseum Dresden took over the ownership of the fuselage for restoration. Initial preservation work was done at Aerotec in Rothenburg and in August 1995 it was transfered from Rothenburg to the Elbe Flugzeugwerke in Dresden, where the fuselage was restaurated in Hangar 222, where the 152s were built in the 50s, until 2001.
