In 1967 Jack Canary began license production of the prewar Bucker Bu 133D-1 Jungmeister single-seat aerobatic biplane, powered by rebuilt Siemens-Halske Sh 14 A radial or modern alternative. Three built in factories of Josef Bitz Flugzeugbau at Augsburg/Haunstetten; production then transferred to Wolf Hirth GmbH at ?????????. Total of eight ordered (first one flown Summer 1968), but activities suspended after death of Mr. Canary in August 1968. Four were completed by Bitz and Hirth; the program was abandoned as uneconomic in January 1972.
