Messerschmitt Bf 109G-10 in Detail

n by Martin Waligorski


Bf 109 Reprise...

When this webzine was started almost three years ago, I wrote: Could the IPMS Stockholm's site do without a decent Bf 109 walkaround? Of course not...As our veteran readers will remember, we've been on this subject twice already: The NASM Bf-109G-6 was our walkaround subject in April 1997, and Bf-109E from Hendon's RAF Museum in July of the same year. Especially the G-6 feature is of special meaning to me. These six not-so-perfect shots taken by me on a visit to Washington museum were a start to our today quite satisfying (and still growing) collection of aircraft walkarounds.

These two essays by no means provided a complete coverage of the vast subject which the Messerchmitt's classic fighter provides. So I'm not afraid of repeating myself now by showing another Gustav, this time a G-10. Another factor making just a G-10 interesting is the recent interest in the final Messerschmitt variants shown by mainstream kit manufacturers like Revell/ProModeler or Hasegawa.

Our subject this month, the Bf 109G-10 werk nummer 611943, has been built at the Wiener Neustadt factory in 1944. It saw service with II./JG52 on the Eastern Front, but was surrendered to the American forces at Neubiberg Airfield near Munich at the end of hostilities. Brought back to the USA for evaluation, this machine was saved from scrapping by Planes of Fame Air Museum founder, Ed Maloney, in 1957.

It is currently on display at Grand Canyon division of the Planes of Fame where these photos were taken.
