Do you know who the pilots were?
Steve Hinton was flying the FW.
The 109 was flown by Bud Granley.
Thanks. That's good to hear. Bud is a good friend,and also a top pilot. He loves to try new planes. i've flown with Bud often.
Very cool!! Thanks for posting the pics...
Nice pics! Is it an original Fw190 or the new built Flugwerk Fw190? The Bf-109 seems to be a very rare E-version. In Germany we unfortunately have only very few G-models flying. Since my dad has flown both types in combat in WW2 I really like that these planes are kept alive! Great stuff!!!
Thomas - that Fw190 is the real thing, the only original example currently flying with an original engine that I'm aware of:
EAA Lifetime #638979
EAA—The Spirit of Aviation
thanks, also for the link! It is really great that a real Fw190 is flying again, one out of more than 20000 produced in WW2. All the others have been scrapped in the one or the other way.
