Mü5 "Wastl"

In the late 20's, several airplane designers tried to spare the tail section of a glider. Among them was the Akaflieg Munich. Within three months, the delta plane Mü5 'Wastl' was constructed. It had positively darted wings with a horizontal fold and a tiny oval cockpit that gave the Mü5 its nickname 'flying egg'. This was a flattering name since 'Wastl' never actually flew. The longest 'flight' lasted 15 seconds. Finally, the delta glider crashed. "There was only one consolation for us", resumed Akaflieg's Egon Scheibe in a humoresque flight report, "most other delta projects shared our fate!"
