Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister

1st Flight 1935

The Bücker Bü 133 Jungmeister was an advanced trainer of the Luftwaffe in the 1930s.

It was a single-engine, single-seat biplane of wood and tubular steel construction and covered in fabric.

The Bü 133C racked up numerous victories in international aerobatic competition, and by 1938 was the Luftwaffe’s standard advanced trainer.

At the Brussels meet that year, a three-man Luftwaffe team made a strong impression on Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, who ordered a nine-man team be formed.

It dazzled the crowds at the International Flying meet in Brussels the next year.
