    Oh wow, that does look sad. Is that a replica or the real thing?

      Looks like the Flug Werke FW-190 with the R2600 in it.

        I think your right David, thankfully the prop blades were wood which should have kept the engine damage to a minimal.. Hopefully it can be rebuilt as it is neat to see this type in the air!

          N190DK lives in Kingman, AZ but that background does not look like Kingman.

            Looks like Dan Kirkland's FlugWerk WNr.990019/Fw190A-5, WNr.1134?

                It does seem that Flug Werke will need to be investigating having a further batch of wings built.

                  David, Dan Kirkland's FW has an ASh-82 fitted, in common with most of the type. Frasca's has an R-2800, but none that I'm aware of have an R-2600 fitted.

                    I believe it is based at Costa Mesa

                        The accident ocurred in Casa Grande, home to Gosshawk Aviation which has becomes something of a specialist in 190 resto work.

                          I've no idea why I wrote Costa Mesa, I of course meant Casa Grande. Thanks for the correction Chad.

                            I imagine the landing might have been rather less fraught had there been just one pilot in the cockpit. It is, after all, configured as a single seater.

                              Indeed. Looks like the starboard landing gear has punched through the upper wing surface... resulting in a very non-original stance.
