Designer Don Mitchell built his
first airplane in 1929 while still
in high school. Along with sailplane
designer Hawley Bowlus he founded
Bowlus Sailplanes Inc. in 1937. The
company produced kit planes such as
the "Baby Albatross." During World
War II they built CG-4A gliders for
the U.S. Army.
After the war Mitchell
developed sailplanes and
ultralight powered gliders
such as the Nimbus seires,
the B-10 Motor Glider and
the U-2 Superwing.
