Default Grand Champion Plans Built - Bucker Jungmann

I was honored to get assigned the photoshoot of this beautiful Bucker at Oshkosh. Nice to see a biplane get this award!

I saw it up close, the pics don't do it justice.

I understood, just giving him crap. I thought it was funny.

I got some close-up ground photos too. It is a beauty.

After I pressed send, I thought that isn't gonna sound right.
Your pictures are very well done, no slight intended.

I knew what you meant! I actually agree, the photos don't do it justice. All I knew was they wanted me to find a certain Bucker in the homebuilt section. I had a black and white copy of a photo to go by. When I found it, I understood why they wanted pics!

Beautiful shots!
I was the guy in the front seat (Bruce and I flew our Buckers in formation to OSH but his is WAY better looking!)
Any chance I can get the hi res versions of these pictures??

Thank you!

Awesome to hear from you. You were the hardest part of the shoot! I was telling the photo pilot, the hardest thing to do is get pics of the passenger in a biplane. I told him it was a must for me that you were at least in some of the shots.

I didn't get to meet any of the pilots ahead of time. I didn't know they were briefing us separately. Shoot me an email at jackfleetwood(at)yahoo.com and I'll get you some pics.

I love the Bucker. They are the most beautiful biplane wings on the planet. And nothing, NOTHING looks better in the box (especially when its “larry e” diving in). A couple of days ago I helped trailer one that had wrecked at Ocean City. We tore into the damaged wings the next day and I saw that the beauty is more than skin deep. So, yeah, I am in love.

Beautiful shots and obviously a beautiful build!

If you were to look at the plans you would also realize the Herculean challenge required to build one from scratch. Any regular Pitts, Duster, etc. is a huge investment in time as many here know. I suspect a Bucker is greater by a considerable factor. I'm impressed!


Every time I see one I think of the Spanish project I and a buddy passed-up 40 years ago, the reason being we didn't particularly like the Lycoming conversion and were afraid of the original engine. From what I hear if we had the chance to fly one we might have jumped on it.

Of coarse after seeing Tora Tora Tora again recently I recall what those aircraft could have been grabbed for in the early 70's....

Oh well

For forum members that aren't aware the Bucker website is good with plenty to be jealous of. www. bucker dot info.

I have been waiting to see some of these pop up here in the USA.

http://www.bueckerundfunk.de/

Looks good on paper, I'd love to see one in person, I keep expecting them to show up at Oshkosh. Price is not too bad compared to other LSA or kits. Anyone know anything about the little inline four?

Heh, my brain translated that link as "Bücker Rundfunk," which is vastly different from "Bücker und Funk." Rundfunk is broadcasting -- one of the big radio broadcasters in Hamburg when I was there was NDR2: Norddeutsche Rundfunk. I was having a hard time imagining how a radio broadcaster would be involved in biplanes.
