The Junkers G 23 and G 24 was a German three-engine, low-wing monoplane nine-passenger aircraft manufactured by Junkers from 1925.
On 24 July 1926, two G 24s became famous after having flown the 20,000 km route between Berlin and Peking in just 10 stops. This flight ended on 8 September. It was initially meant that they would fly all the way to Shanghai, but they were prevented by military conflicts. On 26 September 1926, the two aircraft landed again in Berlin. Later during the year, a trans-Euro-Asiatic line is created.
Lufthansa, who operated the largest G 24 fleet in the world, decided to modify their G 24s to a single engine standard. The first modifications were done in March 1928. The wing was shortened and the center engine was replaced with a BMW VIU engine. Junkers called this aircraft F 24ko. A total of 11 G 24s were modified to F 24 standard between 1928 and 1930. By July 1933 most of these BMW-equipped F24s were again modified with the new Jumo 4 and designated as F 24kay. Most of these F 24s remained in service at the beginning of the second World War in 1939. Most of them were used as freighter transport aircraft by Lufthansa.
The Soviet-German aircraft cooperation in the 1920s let to a Soviet request for a new bomber aircraft.
Junkers then designed the Junkers Ju 25 as a twin engined bomber aircraft. But the development of this aircraft was too expensive for Junkers, especially since there were some difficulties with his Russian partners. Junkers then advised his lead designers Ernst Zindel and Hermann Pohlmann to design a military derivate of the G 24. By November 1924 the new aircraft was ready, and given the designation G3S1 24 and it was a direct modification of the G 24ba. The aircraft was said to be an ambulance aircraft. Junkers followed up this design with several reconnaissance designs e.g. the G1Sa 24 which was a modified G 24 with only a single engine. The next design, the G2sB 24 was also a bomber aircraft, directly derivated from the G 24he. This aircraft had a new center wing section and a new nose section, to allow an open shooting area to the forward areas. Junkers decided to produce this design as the general military version of the G 24 and gave it the designation K 30 in 1926.
In 1926, the Finnish airlines Aero O/Y acquired a Junkers G 24, which went into service on the Stockholm route. The aircraft was equipped with floats, but not skis, and so could be used in summer only. It remained in service until 1935.
A Swedish G 24 also participated in the rescue of the unfortunate Italian Umberto Nobile expedition to the North pole. This was the first time an aircraft had flown over the Arctic Sea without stops.
