Respect the aircraft manufacturers for the SVT railroaders
At the beginning of June, some members of our interest group paid a visit to SVT Görlitz, combined with the opportunity to visit the Vindebona Association in Dresden. The purpose was to compare information from our IG Luftfahrt Dresden and the IG Luftfahrt Schkeuditz, that in these trains seats according to the design documents of the aircraft seats of the first German jet-driven passenger aircraft, which "152" should have been installed. Further research confirmed this assumption, since the former MAB Schkeuditz, Plant 5 of the United Aircraft Works in Dresden, was the developer and producer of both the aircraft seats and the railcars.
The train seats are not identical to those of the 152 / I and / II.
But they arose from the existing designs for the "152" and the successor model "153", with design changes and adjustments for the SVT. Because seat frames, folding table, backrest shape, armrest and locking point to the same design documents. The bogies of the seats are a special new design for the SVT railcar.
These were interesting results that we want to pursue further - in the sense of obtaining certificates of concrete industrial history in the local aircraft construction. From this point of view, our respect for the enthusiasts at SVT.
