Schweyer Rhönsperber
The Rhönsperber was developed from the Rhönbussard, with a greater wingspan and better visibility it was designed to take advantage of thermals. In 1936 Heini Dittmar flew a Rhönsperber over the Alps to Italy, a first for a sailplane. In 1937 a Rhönsperber set a new height record of 5760m flown by Paul Steinig.
