WW-II Era German Aerospace Companies Alive & Well To This Day
On the schematic above, look at the company logo for the following WWII-era German anti-gravity Haunebu spacecraft o ne of the predecessors of the increasingly famous TR-3B and other modern spacecraft used by the US Space Force. The drawing’s (red-boxed) company logo depicts a top-view of an aircraft profile. Also see the schematic shows the “Do-” company abbreviation, which stands for the company that produced the document: “Dornier”.
Dornier was a prominent German aircraft manufacturer at that time. They produced Germany’s most advanced aircraft, like the Do-335 Pfeil (“Arrow”), arguably the fastest propeller-driven interceptor aircraft of its era, and among the first aircraft of its kind to have ejection seating.
I was cruising around the web today, and saw this ad for a Dornier edition of a Fortis watch. I immediately saw the logo.
Other major German aircraft companies from that time that have had watches made in their honor include Messerschmitt and Junkers.

PS: In middle school I became a licensed pilot, and was an aircraft mechanic. I also hold completion certificates on basic orbital space mechanics and physics. So I know a few things about about aerospace technology.
