It is the “Akaflieg Darmstadt München DM-1”. This research glider was designed by Alexander Lippisch and was to be developed into the Lippisch P.13a interceptor aircraft.

Yesterday, I wrote about same project for my group where I am the Administrator of JAT Memories – that’s Yugoslav Airlines!
The plane in the article was a RAM Jet powered test plane that could achieve a speed of 2.3 Mach. The project was in the late World War II by Dr. Alexander Lippisch and, due to fuel shortages in Germany, was designed to use coal pellets as fuel rather than kerosene!
Historic Wings is pleased to present our daily story celebrating what happened today in aviation history.
