Photo Comment

The Condor IV is a 1952 twin-seat trainer development of the pre-war single-seat performance glider Condor I/II/III series. The Condor IV was built by Dittmar (2x), Schmetz (5x), Schleicher (7x) and Madsen in Argentina who built 18 kits for completion by gliding clubs. The photo shows a Schleicher-built one that was built in 1953 and registered as D-1092. It later went to the Deutsches Segelflugmuseum at Wasserkuppe where it was painted as "D-CONDOR" to commemorate the original Condor prototype, but that was a quite different single-seat Condor I.
