109E found in India!
Thu Sep 5 12:41:51 2002
193.63.48.48

The October 2002 'Aeroplane' has some pictures and an article regarding a Bf109E-1 found in southern India.

Their web site:

http://www.aeroplanemonthly.com/

also has the photo's.

Any ideas as to its identity? The article refers to "the markings 9/JG52/53 were noted on the tail".

Curiouser and curiouser!!

Bf 109 E-1 in India
Fri Aug 29 19:05:25 2003
172.196.189.174

Here's a translation of an article that appeared in a German newspaper:
Shortly before its planned scrapping, in southern India a rare BF 109 E-1 with Werknummer 4034 could be saved. A British collector has bought the machine and wants to restore it in England with an also available DB 601-engine to an airworthy condition. The fighter built in 1939 at Focke-Wulf in Bremen still bears remains of its original camouflage painting. Probably it belonged to 8./JG53 and was flown by Xavier Ray. He had to perform an emergency landing on 2. November 1940 near Lower Hardres on British territory. The plane was shipped to India, probably as a technical piece of exhibition. Only in 1996 the rare specimen was recognized by an aviation engineer and so rediscovered. At the moment there is only one single airworthy Bf 109 E.

U can see the discussion we had over on LEMB but I'm wondering the same thing since then - how much it was paid!?

109 in India

12.203.225.90

I don't recall that photographs of Ray's aircraft after capture have ever been published. Anybody know of source for same. Certainly since it was shipped to India, it was probably received with some press fanfare, and photos of it on display in India should certainly exist.

Thanks,

Larry Hickey

Heh. This is fairly interesting...

63.188.177.105

nice to see The 109 Lair gets read by mainstream media outlets, even if it's not credited... :-/ Tom, would you mind forwarding me the link or contact info for that paper? Since my site is the one which originally postulated the ID of this aircraft (after discussions with Dave MacDonald and Dave Wadman), I'd be interested in at least updating my article with this info.

Thanks,

Lynn
