The french FW 190A has crashed into the sea after experiencing an engine-failure after a barrel-roll.

The pilot survived and is in good shape (thankfully).

He was able to ditch the plane just off the coast.

I hope I would have thought twice about going up after the 11th engine failure... Sorry, it's a real shame the aircraft is lost. I'm glad the pilot is ok.

I'm also glad the pilot is OK, hopefully another Fw190 will soon be in flying condition...

If in 50 years divers discover the wreck, they'll certainly amazed how the Germans attained an Ash-82 from the Soviets in WW2.

Good to hear MM is okay. Sorry to hear about the Fw.

Maybe Kettenhunde is working as a consultant for them?

S!

Good the pilot is in good shape, planes can be replaced a life not. Russian engines seem to be "high quality" and those are NEW ones built with modern tech. They should use BMW instead. /extreme sarcasm included!

Sad - the plane - and good - the pilot - new in the same pack.

Well.

That really sucks big time.

Glad the pilot is OK, but that plane hasn't been flying for long...

Glad the pilot is ok. Flying is dangerous business.

Only one thing to add. A Flugwerk kitplane is not an FW-190.

We get request all the time for all kinds of original parts to go on to Flugwerk kits. There is precious little in the way of actual Focke Wulf parts that will even fit on the Flugwerk kitplane.

The one I saw in Chino... White 14 A9, was built with a P&W R2800. They had just finished it, and it had only flown its first flight a couple days prior and needed some work. But I look forward to seeing it fly in years to come.

It won't have the same sound as the DB, but I'd rather have a P&W powered 190 flying than none at all.

Pity about the loss of this one. I'm glad the pilot is fine.

Fw190's were not powered by DB engines, I think you mean BMW http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yes, you're right, that's a little consolation.

Anyway I cannot wait to see a genuine Fw190 (BMW powered) in the sky! BTW I wish you guys all the best with your Fw190F8 "Weisse 1" restoration, this project is just fantastic http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
