Glider – Sailplane – Vogt LO-150 - Vogt LO-150 – Registered as VH-GUC

Australian Gliding Museum, Parwan

Single seat competition sailplane of wood construction.

Historical information

The LO150 is a sailplane first produced in 1954. Designed in Germany by Alfred Vogt, the LO150 is of all wood construction. It has a two piece wing of 15 metre (49 feet) span and a fuselage of monocoque design. The LO150 is development of the 10 metre (33 feet) span LO100 which is one of the few fully aerobatic sailplanes in the world. The LO150 is in the semi-aerobatic category. The first of the type to be imported into Australia arrived in late 1955. In January 1956 this aircraft was used to create a world speed record of just under 75 km/h for speed around a 300 km triangle and went on to win the Australian National Gliding Championships. The Museum’s LO150 (VH-GUC) – serial number EB71 was imported from Germany in 1971 by the late Frank Erdmann and an ownership syndicate formed. Over the years J. Buchanan, N.L. Lovell and Partners and W.S. Mayfield have held ownership interests in the glider. No history of the glider prior to its arrival in Australia is known. Its first flight in Australia was on 6 February 1971 at Bacchus Marsh when a test flight of 35 minutes was conducted by way of aerotow by Doug Vanston. On the same day another 3 flights totaling 2 hours 55 minutes were conducted at Bacchus Marsh. Shortly after its initial testing VH-GUC was transported to Horsham for the annual competition there and from 7 flights over the forthcoming days it averaged just on 4 hours per flight. Local flying continued at Bacchus Marsh on a sporadic basis until December 1972 – January 1973 when the glider was flown at the National gliding competition at Waikerie in South Australia. Some 17 flights were undertaken there in VH-GUC for a total flight time of 34 hours 33 minutes covering cross country courses of 1366 km. From 1974 to 1978 the glider was flown regularly. It appeared that the annual Horsham gliding competitions each of those years and performed well. It was awarded first place in the Sports Class on day one of competition in February 1978. Over the following years the glider was flown on a sporadic basis until its last logged flight of 1 hour 15 minutes on 3 January 1988. The log for the glider indicates that, since arriving in Australia, it has flown 315 hours from 273 launches, which is a commendable average performance of over an hour per flight. VH-GUC was donated to the Museum by Warren Mayfield in 2002. Substantial glue deterioration was discovered in one wing and, as a result, a decision has been made not to restore the glider to an airworthy condition. In due course the glider will be repainted and further prepared for display.
