The usage of the name "Junkers" is very confusing on this page. It os often unclear whether it referes to the engineer Hugo Junkers or to one of his former companies, such as Junkers & Co or others. Also, this article does not differntiate between the different companies. The history of the company Junkers & Co needs to transferred to the porper lemma (instead of the page redirecting here) while this page should only deal with the aircrafts. -- Riper2008 14:51, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Well I disagree. I think the distinctions between the different companies are well explained through the body of the article. Further, the wiki generally doesn't use "Co" in names, so your move is against general guidelines. I haven't seen anyone else express concerns about this either. Maury 17:48, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Dear Maury, first of all, sorry for the "& Co" thing. I wasnt aware of this rule and just blindly copied the name from the german wikipedia. However, I didnt move any content there, so no harm done. One could use "Junkers Flugzeug- und Motorenwerke AG" as the article name instead. What I moved was the content from "Junkers" to "Junkers (aircraft)" as the name stands for various companies (which may all be traced back to Hugo Junkers but have nothing in common anymore today). That I would like to separate the aircraft history from the rest was only a idea so far that I wanted to put on discussion. Regarding the name distinction: I cannot see any distinction between the person or any company. Only the paragraph "Financial Troubles" and the last paragraph mentions other companies at all. Moreover, only in the same paragraph the owner Hugo Junkers is mentioned for the first time, and this is only with his first name... . Also, I may be the first one to be concerned about it, but maybe I am because as another example, the article only starts with the production of airplanes in 1914. In fact, Junkers & Co was founded in 1895 and had a successful history in non-aviation technology before starting with the design of aircrafts (actually this part of the company still exists today, now under ownership of the Robert Bosch GmbH). I hope you can see my point. Cheers, Riper2008 05:20, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Junkers.png[edit]

what about post WWII East German Junkers[edit]

Most of East German Junkers were forcibly relocated by the Soviets to work on the Russian Space program. Perhaps this is worth mentioning? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 169.234.242.8 (talk) 19:44, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Jumo[edit]

I assume Jumo is a contraction of "Junkers Motorenbau"? Drutt (talk) 09:47, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Junkers Today[edit]

Would it be possible to expand on and mention a bit about Junkers today or clearly state what happened to Junkers after the 1960's. The whole post-war history seems to be absent. Please forgive me if this question or suggestion seems a lot, I have the upmost respect for peole who research and write articles like this - but it was curiousity about what happened to Junkers post-WWII that led me to this article in the first place!

The Ju 52 was a bona fide commercial success[edit]

What is a "bona fide commercial success"? Could the person who wrote this please use English that we can all understand? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.148.235.4 (talk) 20:11, 27 April 2011 (UTC)


I think the picture of the only surviving J1 is of the later J1 biplane ground-attack aircraft, not of the experimental monoplane.Manormadman (talk) 14:04, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
