Old master

Pilot - - NEW REGS -

In the im­me­di­ate pre-war years, the Bucker Jung­meis­ter es­tab­lished it­self as Europe’s premier aer­o­batic air­craft and ex­am­ples were dis­patched on world sales tours. One such, reg­is­tered PP-TPD, made eighty de­mon­stra­tions in South Amer­ica in­clud­ing a high-al­ti­tude cross­ing of the An­des. At the out­break of war it stayed in Brazil be­fore mov­ing to the United States and thence to Eng­land in1988 for restora­tion. At that time the Civil Avi­a­tion Au­thor­ity would re-is­sue un­used pe­riod reg­is­tra­tions and the 1938-vintage Bucker was al­lo­cated G-AEZX. A sub­se­quent owner re-reg­is­tered it as G-PTDP but it now re­verts and may lose its in­ap­pro­pri­ate Luft­waffe colour scheme.
