I would imagine it has been a very long time since a formation like that has been seen. I am really pleased that finally there are some original German warbirds flying, and together too. :D They may have been the enemy and fought for a terrible cause, but man are they beautiful machines. Great shot despite the lack of light! Believe me I know exactly how annoying it can be when weather doesn't play ball.

yep, from what they were saying its been since the late 40s ^^'

I completely agree. Its a machine, yes it was used by one of the most brutal regimes in history, but if you look past that, and just look at the design of those birds, they were simply amazingly beautiful aircraft. Gotta say though the 190 sounded odd. almost like a radial and an inline combined (course I'm used to the rumble of American radials ^^')

And yeah, I really should've gone to the other side of the field....oh well next time

One day I will see it, I don't know when but I will get there. Of course if they would like to crate it up and send it over here for a few weeks in July next year it would make it a lot easier. :P :D For me the Butcher bird one of the last few airworthy piston fighter types that I havn't yet seen fly, except for the replica. The Zero is of course another one, and I guess the original BF-109 type I saw fly was a Gustav and not an Emile, which I would also love to see some day.

heh well, I need to go the opposite direction ^^'
H-75, Gladiator, Hind, Demon, Fury, Brisfit. The list goes on and on xD

As for the Zero, Paul Allen's M3 went away for restoration....when it'll be back, no idea

oh yeah. quite interesting to hear the difference in sound. the BMW on the 190 wasnt like any radial I've ever heard though (used to R-2800s, R-3350s, R-1340s, etc). Kinda had the high pitched mechanical whine of the 109, but with the low rumble of a radial engine.

You know what I've noticed. My camera struggles with camo planes more than with others. Maybe that was part of it?
