History
     
The Akaflieg München designed this tailless glider in less than 3 months in 1930. It was soon knicknamed "The
flying egg". It was a failure. Only jumps with a few seconds flyng time was achieved. It was finally destroyed. Egon
Scheibe said afterwards that the only comfort they had was that other tailless designs ended up in the same way.
