Below left, is the Rebel 200. In 1990, Richard Massegge won the unlimited trophy at the Internaltional Aerobatic Championsips. in April of 1994, Martin Vavro was killed in his Rebel 300 when his wing broke. The NTSB determined that the spar caps had half the strength that they should have. Hollmann traced the fabrication of the wing and discovered that vacuum had been lost during the curing of the spar. The spar failed at 6 gs instead of 14 gs for which it had been designed. Wing design was peformed by M. Hollmann and aircraft design by Robert Jones. Below right, is the Celstar designed by M. Hollmann in 1987.
