1967 Bücker BÜ133 'Jüngmeister' Replica - N258H

Location: Pioneer Airport

View Virtual Tour of Cockpit

This replica of a Bücker Bü133 open cockpit, advanced training biplane, was built by Samuel Burgess. Originally in the 1930s, the Jüngmeister was designed to train German military pilots. The Jüngmeister, which means “Young Master” in German, is well known for its superbly harmonized controls and aerobatic capabilities.

Burgess flew this aircraft on a 13,000-mile tour of the United States, where he landed in all fifty states between April 1 and June 30, 1970. The flight raised awareness of EAA, homebuilt aircraft, and grass roots aviation. It also showed that an amateur-built aircraft could equal commercially built aircraft in terms of safety, practicality, reliability and durability.

Donated by Lt. Col. Samuel Burgess, USAF, of Honolulu, Hawaii.
