Sperber Junior Glider

During the winter of 1935/36, two special Rhönsperbers were designed and built in the Rhönsperber workshop of Charles Schweyer AG in Ludwigshafen under the direction of Hans Jacobs, the Sperber Junior and the Sperber Senior.

The Sperber Junior, factory number 41/25, was designed to fit Hanna Reitsch “like a glove” and even though Hanna was not very large, she felt cramped in its narrow cockpit. Certainly, no one else could fit into it. Sitting in the cockpit, she said it made her feel “as if the wings grew from my shoulders” and that she felt as one with the aircraft.
