Here is an interesting shot:
If I saw shot this before, I suppose I didn't take notice of it. I knew they made the Bf 109T for the never-finished aircraft carrier, but was not really aware of a Bf 109 floatplane or where it might be used or why.
Maybe they couldn't resist the beaches...
The formidable fighter should have it's own thread, rather to share it with a Me 209 ;)
The G.55 and Re.2005 offered more 'stretch' than Bf 109, I will agree with that. Unfortunately, without late DB 605 versions (or Jumo 213 or DB 603), they will not be able to compete vs. the best the West...
Rare footage of a Messerschmitt Me 262 being shot down by a U.S. Fighter, possibly a Mustang? At the end the U.S. Fighter also shoots down a Ta 152 or Me 109?
Time and time again we see this most important single factor in the performance of any aircraft ignored in discussions.
Everyone knows that a Spitfire I can out turn a Bf 109 E and that the Messerschmitt pilot would be ill advised to fight in the horizontal, right?
Well, for the two...

What would the effect of having a reliable Hispano 20mm cannon with belt fed ammo in Spitfires and Hurricanes in time for the BoB?
The Spitfire's performance my be degraded against the Bf 109, but would that be outweighed by the damage the 20mm could do on the bombers?
Hello, I am trying to find some documentation on the 109 G. More specifically flight characteristics for speeds, diving, climbing and especially turning! I can get all kinds of people "WORD" on the matter but no actual documentation. Any kind of performance charts that I can get my hands...
