    On march 9th me and 5 others from the norwegian armed forces museum went over to Florida to pick up the Fw 190 Black 3 that has been restored by White One foundation for static display. The Fw 190 is now on its way home in a container and iw ould like to thank Mark Timken and his team for great support and a well done job the last 5 years the Fw has been in USA :)
    when it arrives in Norway it will be reasembled ( it took us three days to disasemble it and pack it for shipping ) and painted and go on display

    She's is a beauty! It is almost surreal to see such a rare and magnificant predator.

    in kisseemee. they have a newbuildt D-9 there also ( in a private hangar usually closed..) but in the next years White One foundation will restore their F-8 to flyable condition and fly it in usa with original BMW 801 engine ..
    ( this engine was found in a crate in Norway and been stored since the war..never used and in mint condition ) the White one foundation got the engine in return for restoring the norwegian Fw 190
    but right now the fuselage for the F-8 is at gosshawk and the wings are under construction so not much to see there right now.. but there is still a lot to see in warbirds adevtures hangars there and lots of Fw 190 relics..including whole wings with original paint remaining from a wreck out of russia

    That's one beautiful warbird! One of my all time favorites, even got a print of one hanging over my fireplace (Keith Ferris' "A Test of Courage").

    So few of them still around. Can't wait to see her back in Norway!
