After the airplane was fitted with tanks that held 2,100 gallons of water in an attempt to correct the imbalance, four further flights revealed dangerous spiral instability—the glider didn’t want to fly wings-level. Only two Mammuts were completed, though Junkers had optimistically begun building another 98. All 100 were chopped into firewood for locomotives. Firewood? Yes, Junkers, which had pioneered metal fabrication with its very first design, the 1915 J-1, had been ordered to build the Ju-322 from wood, a material with which it had so little experience that the Mammut had to be extensively redesigned when the first Panzer to clank aboard it crashed through the plywood floor.
