Luftwaffe bomber participation in Nuremberg rallies
 
Dear members,

Has anyone summarised the numbers and types of Luftwaffe aircraft participating in the Nuremberg rallies of 1936, 1937 and 1938? Much has been written about the role of the Luftwaffe in intimidating Europe in these years, but I cannot find any review of the specific aircraft participating in the Nuremberg rallies.

Regards,

Dan

A rather general description of the Luftwaffe in the 1936 rally included here:

RSwank and Stig,

Thank you both for your contributions, and my apologies for a very dilatory response! I have been and still am busy writing. Unfortunately, this has proved a very difficult subject to research, so I will not be including it in my current draft. Let's keep thinking about this, I am sure there has to be a list of rally participants somewhere! If nothing else, foreign military attaches would have observed closely.

Dornier 23s participated in the 1936 Nuremberg rally:

Dornier 17s participated in 1938:

Heinkel 111s flew over Berlin for Hitler's birthday on 20 April 1939
