On the 1st of May1935, the Heinkel works (GMBH) Oranienburg was formally established, for the mass production of the Heinkel He111 bomber.

cetto_1grossThe Heinkel works had always fascinated me, the effect that this place had on the second world war, to supply the German war machine with a total of 2.216 bomber aircraft, the Heinkel He 111 was produced in Oranienburg and Germandorf, the main labour came from the nearby Sachsenhausen concentration camp.

I had done a lot of research on the Heinkel works, and just had to go and see this place, before it is lost forever, The HE111 was also used in the bombings of London and Coventry, and its payload could carry up to 2 Tons of bombs, that sure is some mother fucking Aircraft of its time.

When I finally arrived at the Heinkel works, it was quite a surprise to see the shear size of this magnificent building, and to find all of the munition bunkers as well.

I explored the inside of the assembly hall and some of the bunkers,but most of them was flooded out inside, many photos was taken that day, on my camera but somehow they are all lost, which means I must go back again sometime, its lucky I took some with my phone, but lost all of the inside shots.
