the story behind me latest tail end change ( Fatherland in 1970 inspiration)

The Junkers design bureau at Dessau in 1967 announced their latest project, a long range double decker aircraft for flights to the German allies in south America for the strength through joy holidays. The company's  Bernburg flight test airport was extensively rebuilt for what was to be the largest airliner in the world.
