Bücker Bü – 133C  “Jungmeister”

jungmeister 140x78At the International Aerobatic Championship in Germany in 1936, the 133A showed “astonishing agility”, and by 1938, the C version was the Luftwaffe’s standard advanced trainer.
The Germans were strictly limited in their ability to produce aircraft as a result of the Versailles treaty that ended WWI, and they pushed those restrictions to the limit to prepare the pilots of “sports and aerobatic clubs” that would become the core of the new Luftwaffe in WWII.
The museum’s example was manufactured under license to Switzerland in 1940 for the Swiss Air Force.  Unsurprisingly, Swiss craftsmanship reportedly made the Swiss-built Jungmeisters the best built planes, and the Swiss Air Force’s were the best maintained.
