    Hi guys,

    The Flying Heritage Collection's 190 A-5 went on display for the public today for the first time. As you can see they were still doing a little bit of work on it. They're scheduled to fly it on June 18 with their P-51, and then later this summer with their 109.

    Thanks for sharing mate. It is wonderful to see the original Fw 190 restored to flying condition (not counting Flug Werk replicas here). I especially like the fact that it's painted in the original scheme and markings worn on the day it was lost on the eastern front. I would so like to be able to see it in person.

    Beautiful restoration, and great pics. I agree with Igor about the paint scheme etc, and I too would love to be able to see it. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for the update. Is there a fixed date for the flight with the 109? I may have to travel down there to see that.

    Thank guys.

    Crimea -- August 6 is "Luftwaffe Day." The FHC plans plan to fly the 190, 109 and Storch. Let me know if you can make it. Another must see is is "Eastern Front Day" on September 10, when they're scheduled to fly the Rata, Po-2 and MiG-29! Sounds like a Russian Heritage Flight!

    Damn! Great stuff. I really want to see that one some day. They must have resolved the issue with the prop.
