That's not much compared to other warplanes..

I recall that half a year ago the remains of an unknown Fw190 were recovered in the city of Arnhem - Netherlands - during an excavation.
Got no further info regarding it, i'm sorry..

What i would like to know Woofie, is how many of those Fw190 are in (almost) airworthy condition ?
There must be atleast 1 flying atm, i've seen videos of it..

-- Can anyone post those links pls?

Jagdgeschwader2... Wow Great photos!
I had seen these photos a while back on the forum... but didn't realize that the Dora was Air Worthy.
That must be One Hec of a ride.
Thank's for the Info!

73GIAP_Milan... If I find any more info about air worthy Fw-190's... I'll post it for you.

EURO_Snoopy... it would be quite the sight if they decide to make the Ju-88 flight worthy.
I've seen those photos of it being recovered from the lake.... and I'm still amazed at the condition the Ju-88 is still in... after all those years on the bottom of the lake.
Also that Fw-190 is Very Nice... and they have restored three Fw 190's. Are all of those also flyable?
Thank's for the Links!

The "yellow 10" was displayed at Champlin.

So the D-13 from Champlin and the "yellow 10" at Seattle are the same a/c http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

S!

The "Planes of Fame" in Chino, California has some last flyable aircraft type in the world. They has a 190 and I think it is on loan to another museum and will return.

I wish the props and engines in game would wind down like that when you switch off.
