The Jumo 211 was the most produced German aircraft engine.

The Heinkel He 111 bomber was equipped with engines of this type. The Casa 2.111 on exhibit, a Heinkel He 111 produced in Spain after the war,  was powered by Merlin engines from Rolls Royce. The Jumo 211 was the most produced German aircraft engine. During the period from 1938 to 1944, 68,000 Jumo 211 engines were manufactured in various models and series. 

Mass production began in 1942 under the working conditions of an all-out war effort in the Junkers works in Magdeburg, Leipzig and Koethen, as well as in the licensed works in Stettin and Muldenstein. The Heinkel He 111, Junkers Ju 87, and Junkers Ju 88 were equipped with the Jumo 211.

The engine exhibited here was restored by members of the "Verein zur Erhaltung der historischen Flugwerft Oberschleißheim e.V."
