Photo Comment

BGA3277 registered Mar-1990, later to Deutsches Segelflugmuseum. The construction plans for this glider were published by Hans Jacobs in a 1932 book and quite a few were built. This one was built by Mike L Beach in the UK in 1990 and flew well. Also Schleicher built a similar model but with a number of differences. Both were developed from the 1923 Lippisch Djävlar Annama. Djävlar Annama is a curse used often by Swedish workers in the Lippisch workshop when the hammer landed on their fingers. Hol's der Teufel is a rough translation of that
