Junkers J17

3 seater Passenger Airliner, projected 1921, none built
developed by Junkers Flugzeugwerke in Dessau, designed by Otto Reuter and Pinkert

 

Historical Background:

The J17 was a further improvment to the early K16 small passenger airliner A new engine and less net weight are the main improvements to the K16 prototype. The J17 was designed without a metal tube construction to reduce the weight. Probably due to the Allies restrictions, this design was abandoned.
