Bucker Bu 133 Jungmeister Military Trainer

The Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister (Young master) was a 1930's advanced single seat Luftwaffe trainer developed from the Bücker Bü 131 Jungmann two-seat basic Luftwaffe trainer. The Bucker Bu 133 Jungmeister was built around a fabric covered airframe covered in doped fabric, as it was an advanced aerobatic trainer it was only designed as single seat aircraft.


Although primarily built for the Luftwaffe, Dornier built 52 Jungmeisters under licence for the Swiss air-force and a further 52 were licence built by CASA for the Spanish air force as the CASA 1-133, the Swiss air-force operated their Jungmeisters as a training aircraft until 1968.

Adolf Hitler and the 1936 Berlin Olympics

Adolf Hitler wished to impress the world with the strength of  Germany's aeronautical industry, he therefore arranged for the 1936 Berlin Olympics to include an aerobatics competition, something which had never happened before or since, the flying event took place within the confines of the track and field stadium. The stars of the event was the Romanian aerobatic pilot, Alex Papana, who flew his German built Bücker Jungmeister in an unprecedented display of aerobatics, and the German Count Hagenburg who flew his German built Focke-Wulf Fw 44 Stieglitz to repeated victories (much of the judging was based on the response of the primarily German, stadium crowd...) Although the aerobatics competition was undoubtedly staged it a way to enhance Germany's potential results it was not really necessary , the German  built planes and their pilots were truly exceptional.
