This Langhurst Stuka replica is a one-of-a-kind, airworthy, two-seat 7/10 scale replica of the German WWII JU-87 Stuka dive bomber. This unique aircraft would make an incredible addition to any warbird enthusiast's collection! Presently owned by the Commemorative Air Force and operated by the Big Easy Wing, this aircraft was built by Louis Langhurst in the US over a 6-year period and completed in 1979. With no original blueprints available, Langhurst developed the plans for the replica based on one of the only two original, intact Stukas in existence. The aircraft is based on the most produced type during WWII, the Ju 87B-2 Stuka.
This Stuka replica is painted in the same scheme and unit markings as that of Germany's most highly decorated Stuka pilot, Oberst Hans-Ulrich Rudel, who commanded III Gruppe/Stuka Geschwader 2 Immelman (III./StG2) on the Eastern Front during WWII. In November of 1980, Rudel was actually able to fly in this very aircraft! Of the plane's performance he stated: "It is handling exactly as the real Stuka, only how nice to fly one and not be shot at!"
The world class aircraft was on display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum for ten years and has since been featured in a number of videos throughout the years and has flown in airshows around the country, including EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, WI.
The Langhurst Stuka has completed conditional inspections and is fully airworthy. Currently, the aircraft is in need of an ADS-B. The aircraft is equipped with smoke oil generator and a working siren to simulate WW2 aerial action.
