Oklahoman Published: October 18, 1986

A Bucker Jungmeister biplane, lauded as the inspiration for today's highly maneuverable airshow planes, took the spotlight Friday as the newest display at the Oklahoma Air Space Museum.

Aviation pioneer Clarence Page, president and curator of the museum in the Kirkpatrick Center, took possession of the biplane to the applause of old-time fliers from Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas, members of the OX5 Club.

The white-and-red plane was donated by John Shipman, of Duncan, retired pilot for Halliburton well services.

The Jungmeister is new although based on a 1935 German design. A similar one hangs in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington. BIOG: NAME:
