    Photos of the new Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-4 on the german sky

    The photos are taken on the last friday, 08.10.2004 at the airfield Albstadt-Degerfeld in the south of germany. The plane is a new restoration based on a Hispano Aviacion H.A. 1112 M-1-L "Buchon" WNr. 139, but many parts are new (fuselage after the cockpit is complete new from the Flug Werk GmbH). The plane use an original DB 605 A that was restorated from up to 20 diffrent DB 605 engines. The plane was flown by one of the owners, Mr. Wilhelm Heinz and from the "Testpilot" Walter Eichhorn. Ok, that enough. Enjoy the photos.

    WOW indeed,i like the last one very nice,i think this is the way to go ahead in the future if we wish to see a variety of rare aircraft back in our skies again,good for Flugwerke,hopefully others will join the queue to get planes back up where they should be.

    Awesome sight, especially that last photo...............and an even more awesome sound..............

    A big well done to all involved.........

    Shame there are probably no Luftwaffe pilots left still with a current license..

    I know they arn't allowed to put it a swastika on it's tail, but I think it would be better to leave it blank than put that fin mark on, that makes it look really odd IMHO.....
    I was with it all the way until letting the brakes off..........

    They are allowed to, if its historically correct (although this is an ex-Buchon...). I think its more often a case of not wanting to.

    That is the DBs
    Looks and sounds great, more like a Griffon than a Merlin.
    Will make a great picture in formation with the Fw190

    Never a Spitfire around when you need one!

    Excellent photos, of a fantastic restoration. Congratulations to all involved.

    Thanks that you like the photos. ;-)
    A Spitfire was not there, but an other allied plane.

    This AT-6 was "shot down" during the takeoff.

    That AT-6 - it's got the early model tail but the three-bladed prop. Anybody know anything about this? Like the markrings- NACA.

    Thumbs up Wow!

    A stunning restoration/construction, thanks Falcon109 for posting.

    There's something about the 109's profile, especially on the ground, that I find utterly compelling

    Beautiful looking beast. But there's something not quite right about a 109 minus a swastika on the tail...

    I do not know if this is relevant but...

    Itn't is against the law in Germany to display the Swastika?

    This may be 'create the image' as you can't do this to retrospectively to photos/artifacts that already display them
