Default Bf-109 at Paine Field

he Flying Heritage Collection put on another of their "free fly" days today, featuring the Messerschmidt Bf109E-3 and the Russian Polikarpov I-16. i'd never seen a fully restored Bf109 until this one, and never one in the air (i believe this is one of only two flyable 109E's in the world), so this was a real treat in spite of the crappy light and dull overcast sky. this airplane will fly again in September, so i'll probably see it again then, most likely with better weather, but i wanted to get some shots now, just in case i couldn't make it to the September show. 40D, 100-400 at various focal lengths and settings...

Thanks for posting these. I love the old war birds, but I have never seen one of these "in person". lot of WWII vets did, though...

These should be in a magazine, they are THAT good.

These are RC planes, right? Either way, these are really excellent images.

Thanks, Robert! i'd never seen a restored Bf109E at all, much less flying, so this was pretty cool...

Gary, this is the real thing... and what a sweet song that old Daimler 601 engine made!
