Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This very map used by German Luftwaffe pilots and navigators during WW2!

Officially titled NAVIGATIONSKARTE in MERKATORPROJEKTION this line of maps originated from the so-called Vogel maps, which were primarily used as army maps, flyer cards were created by the General Staff of the Air Force and issued as work and navigation maps. The work maps were printed on a scale of 1: 1,000,000 in greyscale levels, while the navigation maps (such as this example) were printed on a scale of 1: 2,000,000 in five-color printing. In addition, the navigational charts, which eventually gained prominence under the designation "Air Navigation Chart", included commercial airports, military airports, water airports, airfields, beacons, obstacles, restricted and dangerous areas, blind and blind landing areas. The following aerial navigation map in Merkatorprojektion, Blatt Deutschland, first published by the Luftwaffe General Staff in 1938 then updated in 1943. Reads along edge Luft-Navigationskarte, Blatt Deutschland, vom Generalstab der Luftwaffe.

This is an excellent example of a completely original aviation map of GERMANY with surrounding countries such as Austria, portions of Poland and many others.

As was done with many Luftwaffe Fliegerkarte, this map is laminated on some sort of soft laminate fabric making water proof and so it can be folded and unfolded many times without ripping.

The map bears the date of October 15th, 1943 and is printed at a scale of 1:2,000,000. The 24 x 27 inch multi-color map features major cities such as Berlin, Munich, Warsaw and many more.
