Title: LET L-13 Blanik

The L-13 Blanik is an all-metal semi-aerobatic glider which first flew in 1956 and was in production for another 20 odd years by LET Kunovice, with over 2,600 examples being produced. It was the most numerous and widely used glider in the world, including 10 years at the USAF Academy as the TG-10C.

Being an all-metal glider, it was subject to metal fatigue and in many countries was subject to a finite fatigue life. In those countries it has mostly been retired from service. In other countries a comprehensive inspection was implemented along with a prohibition on aerobatics.
