BÜCKER JUNGMEISTER BÜ133 1/2.6 - The aerobatic legend
The BÜCKER Bü 133 Jungmeister, a single-seat further development of the well-known Bücker Bü 131 biplane from Bücker Flugzeugbau, is a true icon of aviation history. This aircraft type, somewhat smaller than its predecessor and with a single-seat cockpit but more powerful engine, first took to the skies on August 21, 1935 under the pilot Luise Hoffmann.
The Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister found a variety of uses in different air forces, especially in aerobatic and air combat training. Thanks to its exceptional maneuverability and clean performance in extreme maneuvers, it was also extremely popular as a competition aerobatic aircraft for a long time. Albert Falderbaum is regarded as an outstanding pilot who masterfully controlled the Bü 133 and brought out its impressive flight characteristics.
There were several variants of the Bü 133, including the Bü 133 A with a Hirth HM-6 inline engine of 101 kW (135 hp), the Bü 133 B with a Hirth HM-506 inline engine of 119 kW (160 hp), and from 1937 the Bü 133 C (more details below), in which the fuselage was shortened and it was equipped with a Siemens-Halske Sh 14-A4 radial engine of 119 kW (160 hp). Interestingly, the first two Bü 133 Bs (D-EAKE and YR-PAX) were equipped with the Sh 14 instead of the inline engine.
A total of about 280 Bü 133 aircraft were produced, 52 of which were manufactured by Dornier under license at Altenrhein in Switzerland. A few of these legendary aircraft are still registered and flying in Germany today.
