    Biggin Hill Messerschmitt flies again

    I think this is maybe only the second or third time she has flown in the UK?

      She was restored here in the 90s but only flew in America. The last time she flew before that was the Eastern Front. Flying Legends will be interesting next year!

        Looking forward to seeing some pictures of it, the video of it flying was a bit far away to see much detail.

                75 years since an Emil last flew in the UK, and 22 since a later variant landed at Duxford. Funny enough both a/c now owned by the RAF museum.

                  Great to see and hear the Emil alive again, congratulations to BHHH and co.

                  I'm pretty sure this isn't her first UK flight, I think she flew just the once after being brought back from Canada?
