Siegel MS 2

The Siegel MS 2 was a Polish, amateur-built glider incorporating lessons learned from his first design. It first had only a brief career. In 1925 an improved variant, the MS 3, flew briefly. Mieczysław Siegel, a schoolteacher from Skrynice near Lublin and built his first aircraft, the Speigel MS 1, in the school summer holidays of 1923, it was a simple and light foot-launched glider. Over the next summer he built its improved successor, the MS 2; this retained the earlier glider's low cost paper and card covering over a simple wooden structure but was no longer foot launched, allowing a conventional cockpit. It had a simpler wing and a more conventional, less vulnerable tail. Like its predecessor, the MS 2 had its high wing on top of the fuselage; the rectangular plan wing was built around two spars, covered with wrapping paper stiffened with gelatin. The forward spar was braced with a strut to the lower fuselage and the rear one by wire, allowing lateral control by wing warping as used on the MS 1.

The cardboard covered fuselage had a rectangular section which tapered rearwards more than that of the MS 1 and had an open cockpit overlooking the mid-wing. The MS 2's tail surfaces were all paper-covered, with a tailplane, triangular as before but less broad in chord and mounted at mid-fuselage, it carried a large area elevator. The fin was now conventionally on top of the fuselage, triangular in profile and with a rhomboidal rudder which gave the elevator clearance to move upwards; the MS 3 was a final development. It was broadly similar to the MS 2 but the wing strut was replaced by wire and the paper and card covering by fabric. There was no fin and it had new, cross-axle, wheeled landing gear. Both the MS 2 and MS 3 had short lives. At the first attempts to rope-launch the former, the wind dropped and it would not take-off with a pilot aboard. To please the crowd Siegel flew it empty, as a kite, it performed well several times destabilized and crashed to destruction. The MS 3's new landing gear proved a handicap, tending to sink into soft ground and making rope launches more difficult.

Short hops were made with rope launches. After its flying life ended in a crash it was repaired exhibited at an aeronautics show at Lublin. MS 2 1924 revision of MS 1. Larger all round, new wing with rigid forward braces. Rope launched so conventional cockpit. MS 3 1925 revision of MS 2. Few details available, but with new undercarriage and fabric covered, all-wire wing bracing and finless.
