Further to postwar use of Axis aircraft. Here are postwar pics (LOTS OF THEM) of French (mostly Navy) use of Ju-88 and Ju-188's.

Took me a few days to dig them up from a stack of discs.

Pity they didn't keep some of them for museums, etc.

Excellent!Thanks for posting!
As for the reason they were not kept for museums,I imagine they were just considered so much junk. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
