Caption: Hugo Junkers (1859-1935), German engineer. Hugo Junkers was born in Rheydt, Germany in 1859. He was professor of mechanical engineering at Aachen (1897-1912) and during WWI became involved in aircraft production. In 1915 he designed the world's first practical all-metal plane, the Junkers J1, nicknamed the Tin Donkey. After the Armistice, Junkers established his own company, which became part of Lufthansa, and his aircraft factories produced civil and military planes.
