Classic Aero-TV: RIMOWA'S F13 Junkers - The Legend Grows New Wings

From 2016 (YouTube Version): Rebuilding “The World’s First Airliner”…

The RIMOWA Luggage slogan for their line of high-end luggage products is, “The Luggage with the Grooves.” At EAA AirVenture 2015, our ANN crew met up with Stefan Bitterle, a public relations spokesman for the aviation operation within their company, to learn about their very special airplane. RIMOWA has created the first ever airworthy replica of a Junkers F13 airplane that could be called, “the airplane with the grooves.” Bitterle provides us with a detailed background of the Junkers F13 and of the re-creation of this aircraft by RIMOWA.

On Wednesday, March 3, Starship serial number (SN10) successfully completed SpaceX’s third high-altitude flight test of a Starship prototype from a SpaceX test site in Cameron County, Texas. Similar to the high-altitude flight tests of Starship SN8 and SN9, SN10 was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee – approximately 10 km in altitude. SN10 performed a propellant transition to the internal header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for reentry and a controlled aerodynamic descent. General aviation safety, aircraft certification, and the MOSAIC initiative were among the numerous topics discussed as top officials from EAA and the FAA wrapped up the Winter Recreational Aviation Summit, again held in a virtual format based at EAA headquarters.
