Aircraft found near the island of Lemnos, Greece

Hello everybody,

the fishermen of the island of Lemnos in Greece had a strange catch in their nets. They elevated a propeller from an unknown aircraft, which could be – in my opinion – a Messerschmitt BF 109.

Please, if you are so kind, check the photos (s. attachments) and report whether the shown propeller could originate be a BF 109 propeller.

Thanks in advance!
DG

If there are plates they should be on the front of each propellor, on the prop hub. Best luck.

These blades are tow small for a fighter aircraft - I would vote for an Ar 196.
