Hungary is nearing completion. October 5th a small ceremony celebrating the (near)
completion of several years of work took place in Hereg, Hungary.
Due to unforeseen delays in the rebuilding process, two- three weeks of work are still expected on the Norwegian Ju88 before being returned to Norway. Still to be fitted are things like the bottom gondola, bottom tank cover and tail wheel doors together with some minor parts. Upon arrival at Bodø, Norway the Norwegian museum team will then make the Ju88 complete with all internal details. Next planned step on the way to a complete aircraft will be the rebuilding of the tail plane and fin.
