Oberlerchner Mg-19 Steinadler

musger-19a

 

The Mg 19, which made its first flight in November 1951, is a development of the prewar Mg 9, of conventional wood and fabric construction and distinguished by a laminar flow gull wing in the low/mid-set position, of Gottingen 549/676 section.
There are air brakes in the wing upper surfaces and the two pilots sit in tandem under a sideways hinging cockpit canopy.
The Mg 19 proved to be popular as a training sailplane and examples of the type competed in the 1954 and 1956 World Gliding Championships.
