The design and construction of this helicopter was started in the 1970s by Pierre Gibert. But not having enough space in his apartment, he sold the incomplete machine in 1997 to Paul Rigault who resumed work on it in 2000 and completed it. But it did not go further than the test stage. It used test registration F-WHRP and in Oct-2003 F-PHRP was reserved. In 2012 it was donated to the Musée Regional de l'Air, renamed Espace Air Passion in 2013. It has a 67hp Volkswagen engine.

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.
