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.
