    New to the forum, recommended by a good friend.
    My life is total aviation....I have been a Flight Test Engineer since 1987. Been restoring old stuff since 1978. My website is at default

    When not working, I am busy picking up old stuff, the attached photo shows a DB603 from a Messerschmitt Me410 shot down over England (which hit actor Oliver Reed's house on its way to the crash).
    The website will soon have an engines page to detail the 3 x Merlins and DB603. A P51D Mustang project was acquired recently which will be to static condition (long term). The aircraft had at least 3 kills including a share of an Me163........anyway's hi chaps and chappesses....:D

    Hi Rocketeer everyone else on the board, what a surprise to see that DB603
    again after all this time, I was one of the people who dug it up back around
    1969 or 1970 when I was a member of 1811 Marlow ATC, even spoke to an eye witness of the crash who was still working at the farm at that time.

    Here is an article about the chaps who shot it down in 1944 German air raid on Maidenhead

    where has it been since then ? I've been here in the states for the last 20 years but returning to cold and wet England in about 9 months and would enjoy seeing it again one day, good luck with your projects.
