THE Junkers JU87 or Stuka - short for Sturzkampfflugzeug, the German word for dive-bomber - was a twoseater aircraft easily recognised from its cranked wing shape, fixed undercarriage and fearsome wailing produced by sirens in the wings.
The images and screaming sirens of the Sturzkampfflugzeug will forever be associated with the blitzkrieg and Germany's loss during the Battle of Britain.
