J.Stroud - Wings of Peace
A JL 6 flying in the United States of America.
Reported to be the prototype Junkers-J 13 is Annelise, seen here on September 13, 1919, the day on which it established an unofficial world record by carrying eight people to an altitude of 22,145ft. It is almost certain that in this photograph the wing is of greater span than the original J 13 wing.
Luft Hansa's F 13 D-433 Baumlaufer (Tree-creeper) was built in 1924 and had a BMW IV engine. It is seen with the extended triangular fin. In 1931 D-433 became an F13dle with Junkers-L5 engine and two years later became an F 13fle. In 1934 it was acquired by DVS and re-registered D-OKAX.

The Junkers-J 10 used on the Dessau-Weimar service in 1919. It is almost certain that the Junkers-J 10 was the first all-metal aeroplane to operate an air service. One passenger or a limited amount of cargo could be accommodated beneath the hinged enclosure over the rear cockpit.
