Colditz Glider ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
Perhaps the most ingenious escape attempt ever planned! The Glider built by WWII Allied prisoners in Colditz Castle. Colditz was Germany's "supermax" for POWs. The launch never took place. The war was nearing its end, and it was decided to postpone what would have been the glider's brief and only flight. On Feb. 2 2000 a replica of the glider was successfully flown in Hampshire England, proving the escape glider could have worked. For this flight model, I plugged in as many of the original specs as I could dig up. It glides remarkably well. The model is deliberately crude, in an attempt to keep the feel of a POW made aircraft. I did include some instrumentation that the POWs would not have had.
