Hello Topspeed. Do you know if the photo's in your post above were 109's used for training? I'm just curious as to why they should all be displaying the Swastika emblem where the Cross usually is.

Hello MAX. The Bf110 looks as if the pilot has either jammed the brakes on or the braking system failed which would have automatically locked the wheels. This would have caused the nose to go down and the entire machine would then toss-tail over. If you look to the nose of the aircraft you will see a mound of earth that has caused the flip over.

The Swastikas on the Planes are not German. These are finnish Swastikas, and the Planes are Finnish.

FAF is short of the Finnish Air Force.

FAF had 150+ Messerschmitt fighters during the Continuation War.

Third from above the 109 runned away from the mechanic. In the last pic the collided when landing and two before that were due to very bad visibility on a dirt runway during the summer.

The number/marking MT-211 indicates that it was the 11th 109 G-2 flown to Finland. Mechanic possibly was surprised about the power the 109 yielded and lost it. They had previously been operating with 800 hp Brewsters and Fiat G-50s. Finnish mechanics overall made a huge job considering the immense amount of different type of aeroplanes used by FAF.

Other two on top are take off related mishaps.

IMHO, that the FAF could operate with so many different kind of planes and be successful against the Russian air force is worth a high prise. It tells very much about the skill of its pilots.

Hi,

Agree. I wonder if the germans knew what they did when they wanted to use the Me 109 on their carrier.

So long.

Max - do your files state from which ship the Arado was photographed?
HK 'Orion' had a mishap - the description of which exactly matches the picture of the inverted Ar 196?
