Re: Bf109T - deck trials

Thanks gents,
Gives me a few areas to investigate, though my question is just of general curiosity. I'll try and track down access of the early chapters of 'Graf Zeppelin's Eagles'. 3rd/English version by Chandos, seems to be regarded by your good selves as the most recent.

@Modeldad: is there any details/caption for that photo?

Thanks & regards,
...geoff

It was the first B-1 built by Erla, in April 1937, and received civil registration D-IKAG. After its conversion to a T development aircraft, it was taken over by BAL in Augsburg on 25 June 1938. For its catapult tests in Travemünde, it received the Stkz. TK + HM.

There was absolutely no reason for you to respond in the way you did. Let's keep this discussion polite, please.

Entries in Beauvais' Flugbuch from 1937 and 1938 seem to show W.Nr. 301 as D-IKAG - they're reproduced in Vogt's second tome on the Bf 109.

Thanks @richdlc,
Your book is one I want to add to my library, but it'll have to wait until I've concluded my own writing (book on specific part of South Pacific air war). My fiscals are aimed towards chasing different priorities at present.


My immediate interest is because I'm isolating in one part of the house with covid. Mild symptoms, so no real worries, staying out of most of the house to minimize spread to rest of family. Just thinking random thoughts of an aircraft of interest.


Thank you all for your indulgence.

Thanks @pvanroy, that was what I was hoping for in terms of a caption/details.
