Junkers T26 with Junkers L1

Historical Data:

The Junkers T26 was a continued improvement of the T19 and T23 developements. This aircraft was very similar to the T23 in its look and its dimensions, but was much more aerodynamic. The T26 was the last of the highlever monoplane series started with T19 and continued with T23. As the earlier designs the T26 could be equipped with an additional second lower wing (T26D) or with a single top wing (T26E) The aircraft was too expensive for normal flying schools. In sofar it was kept as an experimental aircraft for further design studies. A single T26E was equipped with an Argus engine in 1931.


Modified Junkers T27 with additional lower wing


The T27 was a modified T26E. It got a Clerget 9Z engine. This aircraft was built as a single aircraft due to the request of a former fighter pilot during 1925. Later it was reconfigurated to T26 standard. The T26/T27 was the last Junkers aircraft with top or double wing design. It finished the developement line of the J15/K16/T19/T23/T26.
