There was a thread some time back pointing out that whilst photo's of 109 in the air are common photo's of the fw190 airborne are few and far between.

hence when I came across this one i decided to link it in its own thread:

Cool! I haven't seen that one before.

There's several photos of that Rotte, so they must've done a reasonable photo shoot.

The one closest the camera (White 8) is an A-3, the while the other (White 9) is an A-4. There's a couple of shots of this pair in:

Gordon Swanborough & William Green, The Focke Wulf Fw190, (David & Charles, London, 1976), pp. 92-3, 106-7.

The caption on p. 106 says they're flying over the Adriatic in 1944. The camo is two-tone green (which greens?), white spinner, yellow cowl and rudder. No unit details, either.

Great pic. Thanks for sharing.

cheers,
Ratsack
