    Damn! That could have ended badly. Hopefully the damage is minor.

    Uh oh that could have been bad. Looks like the pilot was able to get her down alright though.

    I have seen that same 109 fly a few times.

    It is based and maintained by the Messerschmitt Stiftung at EADS in Manching, near Munich, Germany. I am sure that it is repairable.

    That was pretty close. Hopefully not too much damage and good news if she flew with the 262 yesterday.

    Yeah I think it will be fine. Kudos to the pilot for recovering it.

    Here are some pictures I took of the same Bf 109 and Me 262 flying together last year.
