"From Ballooning to the Berlin Airlift"

The permanent exhibition in the Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin, "From Ballooning to the Berlin Airlift", displays important developments and events from around 200 years of aviation history in Germany on more than 6,000 square metres, starting with the first balloon ascents at the end of the 18th century to the early years of the post-war period. The Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin has been assembling objects from around the world for this purpose since its foundation in 1982.
As well as famous aircraft like the Junkers Ju 52, known in history as the "Tante Ju" (Aunt Ju), the exhibition includes particularly rare objects such as a Horten Ho II L flying wing, the only surviving Raab-Katzenstein RaKa 9 sports plane and the wreckage of a Junkers Ju 87 dive bomber. With more than 40 aircraft and large-scale objects on display, the exhibition documents far more than just the development of the technology. It further includes details of the many different ways the planes were used and the fates of people who came into contact with them. Aviation pioneers and engineers, pilots both male and female, anti-aircraft auxiliaries, victims of bombs and enforced labour and concentration camp prisoners all tell their stories in their own different ways. Their experiences and memories bring the story of German aviation to life in a way which goes far beyond the merely technical aspects.
The exhibition architecture places the large-scale exhibits within their context to realise this concept. A distinctive element of the exhibition are islands of up to 250 square metres, which combine the aircraft with smaller objects, texts and audiovisual media to form a thematic whole.
