The Lippisch DM 1, an experimental German glider, in the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar. The glider was designed with a cutout section on the nose that was covered with clear plastic to allow the pilot to see the ground when the glider was flying at high pitch angles. This view shows the clear plastic removed from the cutout.
