Hello guys ;D,

from Heinz Nowarra`s Die Deutsche Luftrustung 1933-1945

It is the Bücker Bü 181/2, a parallel design to the Bü 181 Bestmann. It is the sole unbuilt project from this manufacturer that I know. Does anyone know more on Bücker projects?

Not a just project, but actually a prototype was built of the Bücker Bü 134 from 1937.
Nevertheless it is said in Luftfahrt International Nr.6, that this type is more or less forgotten,
because most of the documentation was lost. No, not during the war, but intentionally. During
testing, the type revealed several severe flaws, that couldn't be remedied despite of modifications,
so the project was dropped and it seems, nobody at Bückers wanted to be reminded of this failure !
Dimensions: span 9,950 m, length 7,700 m, a Hirth nHM 504 engine with 100/105 hp
