It was rescued from a depth of 60 metres, where it sank after being shot down on August, 16th 1944, while attacking the Allied invasion fleet. It belonged to the 4.StG77. The tail unit is missed and still rests at a depth of 100 meters in the Mediteranean Sea.

Junkers Ju87 Replica
Internationales Luftfahrtmuseum, Villingen-Schweningen

Replica, Parts only

Several wooden replicas were built by Manfred Pflumm at the International Aviation Museum in Villingen. This replicas were built on request of a film company. Later they were exhibited by Manfred Pflumm at his Museum in Villingen. During the 90s these wooden replicas were scrapped by Manfred Pflumm due to their poor condition. Today just the fuselage of a Me109 survived as a larger part. Among these replicas there was also a Junkers Ju87 replica. When this replica was scrapped, Pflumm kept the wings in his storage. They were further damaged, when the storage tent collapsed during a hurricane in the late 90s, but they are still alive.

On 6th Ocotober 2006 the Greek Navy rescued the underwater wreckage of a Ju87 aircraft, which ditched about 11 kilometers off Prasonisi Island at Rhodos and sank into a depth of 150 meters some sixty years ago. In 2004 the aircraft was caught by fisher net and was thrown towards the coast line into a depth of 15 meters. This Ju87 seems to be one of nine Ju87s, which were shot down by RAF during their attack to Maritsa on 9th October 1943. Seven Ju87 crashed into the sea, while just two aircraft managed to escape to Rhodos for an emergency landing.

The wreckage is a Ju87-D3/trop WNr. 100375, S7+GM. It was flown by Lt. Metzger and Uffz. Sopnemann. The rescue operation was again performed by the Mobile Team of Maintainance Submarine and Marine Installations (KOSYCE), which already brought back a Ju52 two years ago. The plane will be transported in the Museum of Martial Aviation at the airport Dekelej'as. Currently it seems as if the tail unit is missed.

In 1977/78 an U.S. engineer named Louis Langhurst in Minesota designed a flyable Ju87 replica in a scale of 7:10. The basic pattern for this replica was taken from the Chicago Ju87. A total of 8000 Manhours were necessary to complete this flyable Ju87 replica, which is powered by a 220PS Lycoming engine. On 19.07.1978 this replica performed its first flight with Langhurst. The aircraft is painted in the colors of the III./StG2 and registered T6+AD. For flying performances the aircraft is registered N87LL. From 1981 to 1990 this aircraft was on display at the San Diego Aerospace Museum. Then the aircraft was sold to Richard Erzenberger and today it seemed to be owned by Roland Weeks in Billox, Mississippi. This aircraft is currently for sale. Total Flight Time 418 hours.

Flyable Replica

The Classic Fighters in New Zealand are working on a Ju87 replica based on the Chicago Ju87 exhibit. The replica seems to be intended for ground taxiing with a lot of movable parts, i.e. flaps and dive brakes. But it probably is not intended for flying purposes. Currently car engine is mounted for ground taxiing.
