D-EMAW Scheibe SF-23A Sperling c/n 2500 - Flugplatz Rheine-Eschendorf in Germany - 2 September 2016 Flugplatz Rheine-Eschendorf

The Scheibe SF-23 Sperling is a German side-by-side two-seater cabin high-wing monoplane with fixed tailwheel undercarriage, designed by Dipl.Ing. Egon Scheibe. The Sperling is of a mixed construction, the fuselage being a fabric-covered steel-tube structure and the wings being single-spar wooden structures with fabric and plywood covering. The SF-23 Spering was flown first on 8 August 1955, with a 65 hp Continental A-68-5 engine. The initial production model was the SF-23A with a 95 hp Continental C90-12F four-cylinder air-cooled engine, with the first production aircraft flying in September 1958. Subsequently two further versions were introduced, the SF-23B with a 100 hp Continental O-200-B engine, and the SF-23C with a 115 hp Lycoming O-235, the more powerful versions being suitable for glider-towing. In 1963, when production of the Sperling was completed. one SF-23; seventeen SF-23A; four SF-23B and six SF-23C aircraft were built.

The 1960-built Scheibe SF-23A Sperling s/n 2500 is registered D-EMAW in Germany, first as a SF 23A-W Sperling; then as a SF.23A-1 Sperling and today as a SF-23A Sperling. On 2 September 2016, Scheibe SF-23A Sperling D-EMAW was seen at its home base Flugplatz Rheine - Esschendorf (EDXE).
