THE organization of the German aircraft industry has been set up around 5 main companies: Junkers, Heinkel, Dornier, Messerschmitt (the former Bayerische Flugzeugwerke), and Focke‐Wulf. All the other companies, with the exception of the Government‐owned Arado works, have been founded as “shadow” factories for those five—that some of them have taken up the development of their own types does not alter the fact that that is their main task.
