Take a "J" Jet

Реактивный лайнер Junkers (силуэт которого упоминается во вступительной главе). На эту роль лучше всего подойдет восточногерманский "152" конструкции Бааде.
Junkers jet liner, mentioned in the first chapter of our book, should look like the Baade 152 also known as Dresden 152, VL-DDR 152 or simply 152. Designed by Brunolf Baade, a former Junkers employee, it was the first German jet passenger airliner. The "152" was built and tested in Dresden (East Germany) between 1956 and 1961. It represents the final development in the Junkers aircraft family which ended with the "development planes".
