Any1 know if any of these still fly in R/L? I just wondered cos in almost every WW2 film I have seen there are those horrid Hispano (?) things buzzing around that look nothing like 109s.

Bf-109E was restored to flying condition a few years ago...Charlie Brown (the pilot http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif) said it "was the highlight" of his flying career. He said it was so well done it was 'hand-off' on the first flight

Warbirds Worldwide, second to last issue, I beleive, It's called "3579" after the Werke number

I also beleive the aircraft was documentably proven to have been flown by Marseille

This aircraft currently resides in Welland, Ontario Canada, about 15 minutes drive from Niagara Falls. An architect by the name of Ed Russell bought it. I live about 45 minutes drive from Welland... kinda cool to be that close to the only flying E-model 109 in existance. I'll have to figure out its exact location and find out if it'll be flying anytime soon.

Too bad the Canadian Warplane Heritage's Hurricane went up in smoke a number of years ago... how neat would it be to see a 109E sharing the air with a Hurricane.

Regards, Goshikisen.

p.s. the clips of the P-40 and the above 109 starting their engines can be found at hyperscale.com. Take a look through their archives and I'm sure you'll find them.

There's also a air-worthy Bf109G10 (saw pics of it inflight - restored by Hans Dittes IIRC) and a G6 being restored... or is it already finished!? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

There's an article on Ed Russell's collection on the Tourism Niagara website that's quite informative.

http://www.tourismniagara.com/news/newsitem.cfm?RecordID=258

He also owns an airworthy Spitfire and Hurricane and will be flying them on June 3-5th if anyone is in the Western New York, Southern Ontario Region.

Some indication as to where he is located in this quote from the article:

"After the Spitfire, Russell bought the Messerschmitt, followed by the Hurricane. He stores his collection in a hangar he built on a field near Sodom Road and the QEW that was once slated to be home to a professional auto-racing track. Now, he's turning it into a museum, opening his doors to the public to see his collection."

See what you can do with the proceeds from a lawsuit with Disney...

Here's a link to some footage of the airworthy, original (ie. not a replica) 109E that is located in Canada. This clip shows it running up its engine.

http://scalevision.com./videos/scaleworkshop_25.wmv

This link has a series of scale modelling video clips but if you scroll down to the bottom you can see other warbird clips. P-40 (which leads me to believe this is the clip that blue_76 is looking for) and the Canadian Warplane Heritages Catalina (Canso)

Not an 109 or an original, but there is an outfit in Renton, WA building flyable replicas of the Me-262 in several models (including two seat).

And yes, Dark Blue World is well worth seeing.

Interesting about the 109s - pity I live in Australia with no money for airfares :-P

At a recent air show in Brisbane they had (for me) a special treat - a beautifully restored, flying Yak-3 - they zoomed in low over the crowd and inverted, it was a beautiful sight. They mocked up a dogfight between a replica Zero and a restored Mustang (P51D20, I believe) also, which was pretty cool. And used a restored Cat to drop 'depth charges' on a Japanese Sub. The sub was made of wood in a field, and I'm guessing the show explosives were mounted in a hull and set off on cue, but it was still fun to watch.

There's a pretty massive Warbirds scene in Australia, I'm no RL pilot myself but I love to watch the results - plus I scammed myself up into the cockpit of the brushed metal Gooney Bird they flew up from Sydney for the show.

Man, I'd pay good money for the opportunity just to sit in that beautiful bird even for a few minutes....to fly it......

Scampi, Friday the 13th. That's the Elvington Halifax III I believe. I used to live in York and would go to their very fine airshow every end-of-August bank holiday. They put on a good spread, I saw my first Corsair there and fell in love with it. It's a big plane and the rip of the prop sounded great. Made the hair in your ears itch.

Where in Australia are you? I'm from Perth, WA http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif 'The Golden State'

Where exactly is this warbirds scene of yours? I can't remember many warbird shows round my place, but then again I haven't been around for too long either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Oh yeah I remember one time at Jandakot, in the Warbirds hangar there, they've got an L-39 Albatros, a couple Nangchangs from the Chinese airforce, a T-6 Texan and....oh yes a Mustang.
And I jumped into all of them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Would have prefered a P-40 though IMO http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
