Military Aviation Museum, Virginia Bf 109 first flights in the US

The Military Aviation Museum's Bf 109 being readied for the 2016 Warbirds Over the Beach Airshow this weekend. This is actually a Spanish Hispano HA 1112 Buchon restored by Meier Motors with a genuine Daimler-Benz DB 605 retrieved from a Bf 110 wreck to an approximation of a Bf 109 G-4/5 and finished in the markings of Kommandeur I./JG 3 Hptm. Klaus Quaet-Faslem. The second video has some views of the take-off run and fly pasts performed for the first few flights. A single click to view the videos here. Thank you Heb1228

The Military Aviation Museum is in Virginia Beach, Virginia here
