Messerschmitt BF109E Wk. nr. 0845 was shot down by Russian Air Force Yak-1 fighters in April 1942. It was a high-impact crash so, when the remains were recovered from the shore of Podgorno Lake in 1996, parts were used in the restoration of nr.1983, which became the airworthy ’Red 12’, G-EMIL. What was left is now being used as the basis of another reincarnation for a German collector, and registered G-CLBX.
