Fournier RF-4D OO-JLB
The Fournier RF-4D was the first ever mass-produced motor-glider. Designed in the early 1960s by a French artist, musician, and sculptor Rene Fournier, as his personal high-efficiency aeroplane, it was refined in stages before going into production in Germany, where around 250 were built in the late 1960s.
The fabric-covered airframe is entirely built of wood, mildly aerobatic and remarkably strong, being designed to withstand 13g, and tested to 13.8g.
