Bf-109 "Black One"

Recommended Posts

Btw: is this aircraft formally "Black 9", flown by Ofw. Walter Sommer?

Or is this a second aircraft?

I'll track down the history the next time I'm at the museum (been under the weather the last couple of weeks).

 

The restoration is being done by Meier Motors, see the link below (in German).

There definitely seem to be a few left with Spanish markings, which makes me happy.  The desire for German markings must be so strong, that I was worried that many would ignore the aircraft's Spanish origins in the effort to fill the "Bf 109" void.
