Marcus Wendel
Museums & Memorials
Sat Jul 15 15:36:15 2000


I'm working on a listing of all museums with German WW2 equipment.
The info I have so far is published here: http://www.skalman.nu/third-reich/museums.htm

Any additional info on related museums and/or memorials would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

/Marcus

Complementing Marcus Wendel's Museums & Memorials page on his Third Reich Factbook website is Mikael Olrog's Preserved Axis Aircraft Throughout the World website.

Where the museums and memorials page looks at these facilities country by country, noting the aircraft in each museum or memorial, Mikael's website organizes by type of aircraft, engine, or missile, noting at which museums or other facility these are located at.

The address for Mikael's website is: http://www.axisaircraft.com

Regards,
Richard

Peter Evans' Luftwaffe Experten Mailing List website has a Worldwide Captive Luftwaffe webpage listing, by aircraft type, Luftwaffe aircraft in museums or other facilities around the world. In this regard, the listing is very similar to that provided in Mikael Olrog's Preserved Axis Aircraft Throughout the World website. The URL for the Worldwide Captive Luftwaffe webpage is:

http://www.experten.fsnet.co.uk/restore.html

Richard

The Hugo Junkers Homepage by Horst Zoeller presents information and photos of Remaining Junkers Aircraft Worldwide, including engines. There are numerous photos of Junkers aircraft and engines both in museums and at crash sites, some of them under water. The website URL is:

The website A Detailed Look At The Messerschmitt Bf109, by Matt C. Bole, presents exhaustive coverage of the Bf 109. The URL is:


http://members.aol.com/bf109gust/


Of particular interest to the preserved aircraft aficionado is an extensive listing of surviving Bf 109's, HA-1112's, and CS-199's.

Regards,
Richard

Found a rear part of FW 190 canopy
Sun Oct 15 23:14:08 2000


Hello,

I've just found the whole rear part of a Focke-Wulf 190 canopy in woods 2 km from Les Mureaux airfield (30 km west of Paris). There is a serial number in it : 190.122-01 /
40902

Can somebody help me to identify more precisly from which airplane is it coming ? (history, date of crash, pilot, ...)

Thanks a lot

No other part of interest
Mon Oct 16 00:33:15 2000


Sure, I have made some research in the nearby and found a lot of small pieces of metal, but none of them with sufficient interest to identify more precisely this aircraft (the
main parts of the wreck have certainly been removed after the crash or after the war). The only interesting other parts found are : a small hatch (13 x 21 cm) with its locking
mechanism and with german words (Zu and Auf), an engine valve, and more than 10 munitions.
For those interested, I can send you by mail in few days an article (with pictures) that I've written on this story (ask for an exemplar on my mail - sorry, but it will be in
French !)

Tu risques d'être déçu ...

La france a fabriqué des Fw 190 après la guerre sous licence. Il est fort possible que la pièce trouvée soit postérieure au conflit; je me souviens par ailleurs avoir vu pas mal
de pièces de Me 108 et Fw 190 ( tous 2 sous versions françaises) dans les aérodromes de ST CYR et des Mureaux .

C'était au début des années 80

Salut

Yes but the numbers indicate a german production not a french one...unless they used parts from other 190's

I am wrong ?
Mon Oct 16 14:42:24 2000


I think the french never produced FW190 but only had a major repair facility nearby Paris. The NCA 900 that shortly flew after the war were german built but repaired after
the german retreat. So you could not really find french tags on them but german ones.

Is that uncorrect ?

Regards

Vincent

Where can I see a FW 190
Sun Oct 15 23:17:45 2000


In the spirit of my just above article, where could I see a whole FW 190, the nearer from Paris would be the better (Museum, private owner, ...) ?

Thank you.

Tu peux effectivement en voir un à Paris comme viens de te l'être indiqué.

Il y en a un autre à Londres au musée des sciences, ainsi qu'un 163 KOMET et un V 1.

The website Dornier Do-24, by Andre de Zwart, mentions 2 Do-24 found in waters off the coast of Toulon, France. The website address is:

http://www.dornier24.com/

The mention will be found in the section entitled "musea".

Richard

Jon Gant claims for his Messerschmitt Bf 109 website that it is the most authoritative site on the Bf 109. Having now reviewed it, I believe he certainly is in competition for that title. His site address is:

http://www.bf109.com/frameset.html

The sections of the site are as follows:

Site Articles

Messerschmitt Bf 109: The Beginning - Very short article with 2 color drawings and a b&w side view drawing.

Bf 109 Armament, by Tony Williams - Discusses the various armaments used by the Bf 109. A link labelled "armament" at the bottom of the article leads to significantly more information.

Hans Dittes 'Black 2' - Includes 3 color photos.

Preservation of Leather Artifacts: US Air Force Museum

Bf 109 Replica Project - Jon's ambition to build a replica. A link to an article on the Dakota Bf 109 replica tells the story of this interesting project, along with several color photos.

Meeting Franz Stigler, by Markus and Ryan Muntener - Short interview with 1 color and 2 b&w photos.

Bf109 Variant Evolution Information - Production numbers and list of variants with short description of what was unique about each one. Includes photos and drawings of some of the variants.

Messerschmitt Bf 109 Foreign Variations - Useage by Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, and Spain. Some tabular data.

Performance Statistics of the Bf 109 - Technical and performance information for the Bf 109V1, V3, B-2, E-4, F-3, G-6, and K-4. Five b&w photos.

Engine Construction Information - Technical information on the DB 600, DB 601, and DB 605. One b&w drawing, 1 color photo. Link to article on DB 601 and DB 605 with technical information, b&w drawing, and cutaway line drawing.

Armament Information - Table and description of armament used, color photo of amunition, table by variant indicating armament used along with history of useage, and two phantom drawings of amunition.

Pilots Manuals - Acrobat downloadable manuals for the Bf 109E, G-2, and K-4, along with English translations of the G-2 and K-4 manuals.
