This is a replica of the very first rocket-engined aircraft in the world. The original Ente was built as a glider and made its first flight in Jun-1927. It was converted as the Raketen-Ente and as such flew on 11-Jun-1928, first with two 12 kg rockets and in the end with two 20 kg ones. The rockets were ignited after a bungee launch. It then flew 1400m in one minute. On a later flight the same day the aircraft caught fire but a safe landing could hastily be made. In Oct-1928 it was exposed at the ILA Berlin. The non-airworthy replica was built by the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum.

Octave Chanute in the USA was quite successful with his 1896 glider. In 1904 a slightly different version was built for the Saint Louis Exposition where it was flown daily from Oct. 7 to 25. After that it was shipped to France where it is now in the Musée de l'Air in Paris. The one shown here is a replica built by Carsten Brinkmeier, finished in Jun-2006. A few flight attempts were made, but for safety reasons no full flight was made. In Oct-2006 it was handed over to the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum at Wasserkuppe.

D-1398 served for more than 20 years as a research aircraft at the DLR - Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt. It was equipped with sensors and instruments in the wings and fuselage to do measurements in the lower atmosphere. Later it went to the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum as seen here. The Kranich III was designed by Hans Jacobs and made its first flight in 1952.

The Rhönsperber was designed for Schweyer by Hans Jacobs and the prototype made its first flight in Mar-1935. The aircraft on the photo was built somewhere between 1935 and 1938 and its cn and original registration are unknown. It later became D-6262 until cancelled in Jul-1970. Then it went to Sammlung Welzhofer in Günzburg until acquired by the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum at Wasserkuppe. To commemorate the first prototype D-Rhönsperber from 1935 the museum painted it in that aircraft's contemporary markings (except for the text on the fin).

Although sharing the Mü-13 model number with the Akaflieg München Merlin, the Mü-13E Bergfalke is a very different aircraft. As glider flying was at the time prohibited in Germany, the prototype of the Mü-13E was built by the Segelfliegergruppe Jenbach in Austria. The first flight was made as OE-0138 on 05-Aug-1951. Although the aircraft on the photo is painted as OE-0138, the museum says that it was built by FSC Giebelstadt in 1955/56 so this is probably not the real OE-0138.

This aircraft was built in Apr-1943 by Mraz. Its original registration is unknown but it later became D-6260. It was acquired by the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum at Wasserkuppe where it was painted in a late 1930s scheme as D-8-11. To be historically correct it should carry a swastika on the fin but that is legally not allowed in Germany. The Kranich was designed by Hans Jacobs and around 2000 Kranich and Kranich II (the Kranich III is a different design) were built by several manufacturers in a number of countries, and also by gliding clubs.

The ESG-29 is a single-seat primary training glider from 1929 that flew in many countries. Large numbers have been built, also by gliding clubs. It had the nickname "Schädelspalter" (skullsplitter) because of the strut in front of the pilot, but no such occurrences have been reported. The one seen here is an airworthy replica built by Klaus Heyn and handed over to the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum at Wasserkuppe in 1988.

The Grunau Baby III was a further development of the Grunau Baby IIb with a slightly longer wing and fuselage and the addition of a wheel. Schleicher built a series of 21 from 1951 to 1955 and also Meschenmoser built a series. But many more were amateur built by gliding clubs. D-4303 was built by Schleicher in 1951 and later handed over to the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum at Wasserkuppe.

HB-16 was built in 1933 in Switzerland by Messrs Widmer and Stirnemann. In 1970 it was discovered by Klaus Heyn in an Alpine mountain railway shed and brought to Germany where he restored it. It then went to the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum at Wasserkuppe. At the lefthand side it carries the false registration D-FALKE, on the righthand side its real reg HB-16. The Falke was designed by Alexander Lippisch and apart from RRG was also built by Schleicher, Schneider, ÖAeC and many gliding clubs. In England Slingsby built it as the T-1/T-2 Falcon.
