Bo 209 Monsun £59,800.00 GBP
Wilco Aviation are pleased to have exclusively listed this Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm Bo 209 Monsun. The aircraft is currently hangared and located with us at Henstridge Airfield in the South West of England.
Having a G Meter fitted enables this aircraft to genuinely have basic aerobatic capabilities of +4.4/-2.2. The ease of manoeuvres is complimented with the larger 160hp engine and of course a constant speed propellor. Being IFR equipped and having a relatively fast cruise speed of 130 knts - this truly is an all round capable aircraft.
The Monsun was designed by three Bölkow engineers, led by Bölkow’s technical director Dr Hermann Mylius, in their spare time with the intention of creating a more versatile aircraft than the Bölkow Bo 208, with design work beginning in 1965. The new aircraft, designated the MHK-101, was a low-wing monoplane of all-metal construction with a tricycle undercarriage, which had fixed main wheels, with the option for the nosewheel to be fixed or retractable. While the MHK-101 used some components of the Bo-208, it had a larger and more comfortable cockpit, and an entirely new wing, which could be folded for towing and storage (the Bo 208 was a high-wing aircraft).
The first prototype MHK-101, powered by a 125 hp (93 kW) Lycoming O-235 engine driving a fixed-pitch propeller and with a retractable nose wheel, flew on 22 December 1967. In April 1969, Bölkow selected the MK-101 to replace the Bo 208 in production, with the type becoming the “Bölkow Bo 209 Monsun”. A second prototype flew in May 1969. That year, Messerschmitt-Bölkow merged with Messerschmitt-Bölkow to become Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm, with the aircraft becoming the MBB Bo 209. The aircraft, which was offered with a variety of engines, a choice of fixed or variable pitch propellers and fixed or retractable nose wheels, entered production at MBB’s Laupheim factory early in 1970 and received its type certificate on 9 April 1970.
Juliet Delta benefits from having the larger 160hp fuel injected Lycoming engine, a fixed undercarriage on both the main and nose wheel and a low time MT 3 blade propellor with wing fold for the smaller hangars or trailer towing.
G-EFJD has a few world records under its name. Two FAI World Speed Records, the Dawn to Dusk ‘Duke of Edinburgh’s’ trophy twice and a Guinness World Record for visiting the most airfields in 12 hours. She was displayed in the 2019 LAA Rally where the focus was on Royal Aero Club racing.
