Restoration Classics - Messershmitt
Military • 56m
‘Black 6′ was just one of the 30,000 Messerschmitt Bf109’s to enter Luftwaffe service. Today it remains the only flying example in the world, and is probably the most authentic restoration of its type. Over 19 years, led by Russ Snadden, a volunteer team brought this rare aircraft back to flight. This film explores and records the painstaking stages of their task, revealing the aircrafts history through WWII archive, set against a background of secret pilot training in gliders and civil aircraft.
