Bücker Bü 131A Jungmann: ….or fräulein.

Superb portrait of Luise Hoffmann, the first woman works pilot in Germany. An outstanding pilot, Hoffmann made the first flight of the magnificent Bü 133 Jungmeister in 1935. Sadly, she died that same year. The biplane in this photo is the seminal Bü 131 (her D-EGSY), the best basic training aircraft of its era, by very far. In the words of one of the world’s leading aerobatic pilots, the late Neil Williams: “Nothing flies better than a Bücker Bü 131.”
