Description

Let yourself be carried away - to the events on the slopes of the mountains Sísemol and Katz in the Italian Veneto during the First International Gliding Competition in Italy.

Read original reports of the German record pilots Arthur Martens and Fritz Papenmeyer from that time shortly after the First World War. Together with the students of the University of Pavia, they were the international stars of the competition. Compare the points of view, the differences in development and the tensions between the cultures from the point of view of the time. The Italians only began gliding here, while the Germans had been collecting records for several years. The German gliders were also technically more advanced and had already been successful in the Rhön competition.

Lesen Sie eine lebendige Chronik, mit vielen Anekdoten – z. B. warum der italienische Zoll die deutschen Segelflugzeuge beschlagnahmte oder wie das Maultier “Matricola” mit seinem ungezügelten Appetit vielleicht sogar den Wettbewerb beeinflusst hat. Diese und viele andere Geschichten, eine ausführliche Tageschronik des Wettbewerbs – akribisch durch den Autor recherchiert, ca. 90 historische Fotografien, neue hochdetaillierte Zeichnungen der beteiligten Segelflugzeuge von Vincent Cockett und humorvolle Aquarelle von Werner Meyer bieten Ihnen eine unterhaltsame und interessante Lektüre.
