Wikipedia Scheibe Bergfalke This is a link to a Wikipedia article

The Scheibe Bergfalke II/55 is a two-seater, mid-wing glider aircraft. Following its first flight in 1955, the Bergfalke was primarily used as an ab-initio trainer aircraft, but also for competitive long-distance flights. Due to its low glide ratio, it is today regarded as an oldtimer only used for training and leisure.
