Mis­cel­la­neous Messer­schmitts

Pilot - - NEWREGS -

No fewer than three sets of Messer­schmitt Bf109 re­mains come to the reg­is­ter this month. In the early stages of restora­tion, all have been re­cov­ered from Rus­sia. The most ad­vanced is G-CLFI, werke nr 14798, a G ver­sion shot down in 1944 and dis­cov­ered buried be­neath snow fifty years later, which has been par­tially re­stored in Aus­tralia. G-CLFN, 109F 8347, force-landed near Len­ingrad in 1943, as did G-CLFU, an E S/N 7485. These two were sold to Charleston Aviation Ser­vices and have been worked on in Hun­gary.
