Junkers Larsen
 
John M. Larsen immigrated to the U.S. in 1892 from Denmark. As an engineer he designed, produced and sold cooling machines in the U.S.A. In 1919 he intended to sell U.S. aircraft in Denmark, but during his stay in Europe he also saw the Junkers F13 and was interested in selling the Junkers F13 within the USA. Together with Junkers he founded the Junkers Larsen Corporation in 1920, which was responsible for the marketing of Junkers aircraft in the USA. Larsen managed to sell some of the modified F13 as JL6 to the U.S. Army and to the U.S. Postal Office. But due to a series of crashes the JL6 was grounded by both. Larsen also converted one JL6 to a war machine as JL12, but the U.S. Army was not interested in this aircraft and the joint venture was stopped after a few sales, in 1920.
