Akaflieg Darmstadt FSV.X


The foundation laid by Lilienthal and Ursinus was advanced by Darmstadt Technical Institute's tests at Wasserkuppe in July 22, 1912 when a new record for time aloft and distance was established by pilot Hans Gutermuth, who flew the F.S.V. X. glider for one minute fifty-two seconds covering a distance of 840 meters. A replica of that plane, built by Otto Becker's team is now on display in the Glider Museum at Wasserkuppe.
