Monsun 261
Bengt Stiber with Monsun


A glider from 1942 designed by Charles Birch-Jensen and kitted by Truedsson. Birch-Jensen favoured the "two-towhook" method for glider towing, as can be seen on the plan. A short line is connected between the two tow-hooks. The tow line has a ring on its end, which can slide freely over the short line.
