Photo Comment

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).
