3 BMW Engines in this old bus ...

Was at an "Oldtimers" show today with some nice old flying machines and noticed that the engines on this Junkers JU 52 were made by BMW. The thing crawled into the sky, very slow take-off speed. No wonder the German paratroopers faired badly in their invasion of Crete when using these.
