The Grunau Baby in Hungary. Compiled by Imre Mitter

The Grunau Baby IIa gliders were made in Hungary in licence. Four Grunau Babies IIa were bought from Germany in 1944 by the Hungarian Railways "Sport Gliders"Association. One of these was burnt in Farkashegy and another one diappeared during the war. The other two remained damaged, but only HA-3107 was repaired. This glider crashed totally in 1952, because the airbrakes had been permanently opened. In spite of the serious damage, the pilot János Márkus, got out of the accident uninjured. Owner was the MÁU.Sp.Egv aeroclub 1944 - 1952

The "Wolf" was granted by Wolf Hirth to the Scout Gliders Association, after he had crashed one of their Babies in Mátyásföld in 1936.
