Classic Airplane Makes Refueling Stop at Naha Airport

Date Posted: 2000-03-25

Last weekend, a classic antique airplane traveling around the world stopped by Naha airport, to the joy and excitement of airplane fans. This 1939 airplane known as Junkers JU-52 left Deubendorf, Switzerland on January 11th, and traveled through Athens, Dubai, Calcutta and Bangkok. The plane stopped by Okinawa for petroleum refueling and a short rest for the crew. The airplane has 10 crewmembers that take turns in flying it across the world. One of the pilots who flew the airplane from Taipei to Naha, Peter Baumgardner, said that, “the ocean of Okinawa viewed from the sky is wonderful.” The airplane is planning to stop by Oita airport in the Kyushu Prefecture after Naha airport. The crewmembers also plan to fly to cities such as Sendai, Seattle and New York. They are planning to go back to Switzerland in April.
