Post subject: Video documentary on Australian War Memorial Bf 109G6 WKNr. 163824

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Topic. Ex Syd Marshall owned BF 109G6 WKNr. 163824 now situated in the Australian War Memorial Canberra. Hi all, I have been researching this bird for quite a few months (as a few of you guys know) with the view to writing a detailed article on her. The project has escalated into a video documentry so now I am after more info such as any motion picture/home movie film of the aircraft and of course still shots. Also on camera interviews will be required with relevant characters. The documentry will be filmed in the "Ken Burns Civil War" style so still photos will be used extensively. I have read all the posts on here regarding this aircraft and have found them to be of great use. Of course all due aknowledgements will be made. I am looking to make contact with Charles Bavaroise and any others with detailed knowledge that could be used. I can be contacted at saintz@saintly.com

The following information is in references to the website The Hanns Klemm Homepage, by Horst Zoeller.

Go to

http://www.junkers.de.vu/

When into the site go down to "German Aviation History" click on this and then select Klemm

(Per Tony's guidance, this site is found through first going to Horst Zoeller's "The Hugo Junkers Homepage" site. The site appears to be of 1998 vintage and doesn't appear to have been updated since. The Homepage notes the following site contents:

Contents

Hanns Klemm's Biography

Notwithstanding regular airshow dogfights between Spitfires and guest star Bf-109-G aircraft most Easters, New Zealand has a Bf-108 resident near Auckland. This site is worth a look at:

http://www.kiwiaircraftimages.com/bf108.html

...and this is what it had to say about the Bf-108 Taifun:

New Zealand's sole example of the Bf108 is registered as a Noord 1002 Pinguin. However, the aircraft was built in 1943, prior to the manufacturing plant being moved to France (June 1944), and can be considered a real Messerschmitt. During its wartime service, the aircraft was shot down twice. Rebuilt in March 1945, it was given the Noord c/n 103. The Luftwaffe aircraft was surrendered in Belgium in June 1945.

The aircraft entered the civil register as OO-NET. Exported to the USA in 1968, the Bf108 became N108H in 1973. It then passed through a succession of owners in New Hampshire, Colorado, Nevada and Texas before reaching R.L. van Buskirk in Vero Beach Florida. Rebuilt by Piper Aircraft the aircraft received a 300hp Lycoming in place of the original inverted V4 Argus engine. This along with the installation of butane guns, and a Bf108 style paint scheme allowed the aircraft to be employed in film work.

In March 1989, the Bf108 was exported to South Africa. There it was registered ZS-WFI to C. van der Walt of Wonderboom, near Pretoria. Maurice Hayes and Colin Henderson travelled to South Africa to check the aircraft out before importing it to New Zealand in March 1996. They registered the aircraft as ZK-WFI with their company 'Fighter Trainers ltd'. The aircraft is now registered to 'In Touch Travel Limited'

Hi Doyle,

Not sure what other information you may be seeking. This aircraft, currently at the Treloar Centre in Australia, is probably one of the most written-about '109s in existence. Amongst others, Brett Green's book "Augsburg's Last Eagles" (Eagle Editions) discusses it extensively, and there are many photos on Lynn Ritger's 109Lair website. John Beaman's loss report entry is interesting, as it shows why the aircraft was remanufactured.

Regards,

Michael Gorman
