Hutchinson's Pictorial History of the War, Series 26, No 20

AFTERMATH OF WAR i- UNDERGROUND AIRCRAFT ASSEMBLY PLANT Before the war the famous Tempelhof Airfield in Berlin was one of the finest airports in Europe. During the war it became an assembly plant for Focke-Wulf aircraft. In an underground passage beneath the great sweep of the airport buildings two assembly lines for F.W. 190s were laid down. All the parts of the aircraft were made elsewhere brought here and assembled in a passage built of reinforced concrete as shown in the lower picture. The finished aircraft then emerged from the passage through the aperture (top picture) ready for test flying. 458J
