LO 150 VH-GUC

Donated by: Warren Mayfield

Country of Origin - Design: Germany

Country of Origin - Manufacture:Germany

Designer: A. Vogt

Constructor: Wolf Hirth

Year of Manufacture: circa 1955

The LO 150 was adapted from the aerobatic LO 100 of only 10 meter span. About 1953 Vogt designed a 15 meter span flapped wing.

The result was a cross country sailplane of very good performance in countries with strong thermal conditions like Australia.

This example was imported into Australia by the late Frank Erdmann and was flown at Bacchus marsh in 1971 and subsequently flew in a number of National and regional competitions.

GUC languished in a trailer at Ararat for many years before being given to the Museum by the late Warren Mayfield. On examination it was found to have much glue deterioration and so has only been restored to display condition. When painted it will be an attractive glider. thorough overhaul.
