Fw190

Very Nice

From Sandy Air Corp

Dear Friends of SANDY AIR!

We proudly present our recently completed FW 190 D9 WNr. 400616, formerly flown by Uffz. Koch of the famous JG 54 “Greenhearts”

This is one out of only two surviving FW 190 D9 worldwide with authentic serial number and battle history. The aircraft even features the original Jumo 213 A previously used on this Serial number!

The aircraft may be visited at the location of the extraordinary warbird collection “Hangar 10” on the island of Usedom/Germany. (www.hangar10.de)
The aircraft is up for sale now!

All the best,
Wolfgang Falch
SANDY AIR CORP.

Re: Fw190

Dear Mark,

as well as Marc-André I appreciate such a great find. Thanks a lot for this. Nonetheless I am somehow confused about that kite's history You noted. I am active member here and also at lostaircraft.com which I highly recomment as a useful database open to everybody without any fees or charges.
For that particular Fw 190 D-9 You and other members from here may cross-check the entry at http://www.lostaircraft.com/database...iewentry&e=952
At this time I wonder how to restore a complete D-9 out of a 99% damage...

"Cheerio" and thanks again
Norbert

P.S.: Curious enough to see in which hands this restoration will turn

Re: Fw190

Norbert,

Only passing on the information so no idea where the W.Nr came from, where the remains were recovered from and when etc. Also seems your loss with JG2 differs from there loss of JG54.

Nice site.

regards

Mark

Hi all,

that`s how she looked last autumn (I believe October?) when I visited Hangar 10 at Heringsdorf.

Re: Fw190

100% this is a Flugwerk Airframe...not original. 100% Reproduction. It was bought as a Flugwerk reproduction BY Sandy Air. They probably found a "piece" of the original D9 to claim the werk (or are making a completely false claim).

Sadly Air is known as one of the most dishonest restoration companies around...so I would not put too much faith into what they wrote.

It isn't a Flug Werk airframe, they only made three Doras and all are accounted for.
Obviously it is 90% new build, but a nice job in anycase.

Seconded Dave. I saw her in the flesh. It is not a Flugwerk airframe.

Re: Fw190

The fuselage and tail are 100% flugwerk Fw190A series. Most likely part of the wing structure is also Flugwerk.

I had photos of this bird back in January, and can confirm without a doubt that the fuealage and tail are Flugwerk. This is due to errors made by Flugwerk during production, that are common on all models (and seen in the photos). The angle of the antenna mast on the tail, for example.

The rest was added (cowling, engine, etc.) to make it look D9.

100% started as a Flugwerk A model.

Re: Fw190

Hi Guys,

This is a Flugwerk made, as reported by Mike. See "Le Fanatique de l'Aviation" for détails.

Regards, Franck.
