    I found this shot while looking for info on the captured Doras in Russian Service.... Ive never EVER seen a camo job like this on a Dora.... The FE-121 is makin me think its a captured crate used for testing.... There looks to me the remnants of a fuselage stripe, but not sure....

    Anyone have some info on this unique crate, as it actually made my penis move when I first saw it....

    Les I think it is pure after war B.S. as the meander wellenmuster wave was used on Recon maritime a/c and LW night fighters only

    According to books I have the Dora was wearing a fictitious camo pattern.FE-121 marking (FE=Foreign Equipment) was given to the bird during tests in USA.The pic was taken at Freeman Field in May 1946. This Fw 190D-9 W.Nr 401392 was the Black 5 of the JG26 and was captured by the British at Flensburg and subsequently transferred to the Americans as the "USA-13"

    I think a lot of the bogus camo paint jobs were done after maintenance and also for the 1946 airshow season where a lot of these aircraft were put on display.

    Because this is a forum dedicated to aviation, we must be proper.

    Please say "tailspin", albeit to the left....

    Also known as fibrous cavernositis or plastic induration of the penis....

    Could this cause a "slight movement to the left" as previously described ?:evil4:
