Ju 52 Werk Nummer question

I have just come across some info regarding three Ju 52 aircraft used by the Rumanian airline LARES from 1944. They are given as W.Nr. 131406 (YR-ALL), 131407 (YR-ALM) and 131408 (YR-ALO). In my list of Ju 52 aircraft the highest W.Nr. in the 131--- series is W.Nr. 131299. Can anyone confirm the W.Nr. of the three LARES aircraft ??

Re: Ju 52 Werk Nummer question

131406 was ferried by Wilhelm Zimmermann in March 1944 from Dessau - Wien - Arad to Bucarest, so the c/n seems to be correct. The highest c/n, I saw is 131483.

Dirk

Dirk/Seaplanes

Harder test flew 131485 on 14/4/44, this the highest I have and as he flew most of the preceding ones so I think this was the last one( 82 on 31/3/44, 83 on 4/4/44).

The other YR- regs are correct but these also had D-AXV* ferry rgs

Regards

Tony

Re: Ju 52 Werk Nummer question

The Werknummern are correct. All of them were manufactured in 1944 for passenger transport role.
By the way, the entire row started at YR-ALK and ended with 'ALP. The last one was retired in 1958.
Interestingly, the sub-type of 'ALL was given as "P+M".
