        Very symbolic. It’s a pity that it was not in Fashington that it crashed. First, the United States financed Hitler, then sheltered fascist criminals, and now they are building the Fourth Reich and killing millions of people, including bacteriological weapons.

      Rather, he passed or passed, because the plane was landed
      Landing on the least busy area went fine, but when I tried to turn away from a nearby car, the plane wagged and the dividing fender hit the wing, and then it caught fire.

      ... The trophy "Walter" glittered in the veteran's hand
      Easily pierced bullets tight flesh of wheels
      And, as happened more than once in the distant 43rd

          In the film "Only old men go to battle", in the role of "Messerschmitt" Bf.109, a Czechoslovak plane was filmed Zlin Z-326 "Akrobat". This is a sports modification of the training Zlin Z-226.

            Freedom, thanks for the info. I am not an aviator and not an aircraft model as a child. Nonetheless. Czechoslovakia fought as part of the aria of Germany. If it was an IL-2, I would just write, they took it for a cool movie.

              Although the founder of the series (Z-26) was developed in 1940, it began to be produced only in 1946. So, "in the army of germany" was not.
              "Movie actor" (Z-326) went into series since 1959, quite a "democrat" (the communists, in a bloc with several "democratic" and "popular" parties, came to power in Czechoslovakia in 1948).

                  I mean, I don't understand the "hysteria" in the comments about the Luftwaffe symbols on the crashed plane. The article clearly says -
                  The plane belonged to the nonprofit organization Condor Squadron, which runs the military aviation museums and conducting flights of restored aircraft during parades and events in memory of US Air Force veterans.

                  - Someone must play the "role of the enemy" during the reconstruction of air combat at an air show. You can't draw this on a computer yet.

    These airplanes with the U.S. Air Force logo feel quite comfortable in the American sky, but the Luftwaffe symbolic plane didn’t accept the sky and finished off the bump on the ground. It is very symbolic that the Nazi crosses were engulfed in flames.

    the pilot managed to leave the burning plane.

      the museum exhibit, a piece of history, a reminder to descendants are destroyed - and you rejoice .. Urya !!. (children will soon think that the Nazis flew on a broomstick).

      The exhibit, although a museum one, refers specifically to that period of history only indirectly. Just a "light imitation" of the historical prototype.
      But your thought is sound. I support.
      Regarding the demonstration of Nazi symbols, I also think that its thoughtless prohibition, after a generation, will lead to the fact that the descendants will perceive the film "STAR WARS" as a documentary chronicle of the Second World War and use it in school "presentations" on this topic in the classroom " stories".
      Because, by then, this will lead to the fact that it will become incomprehensible "with whom, how and on what" our grandfathers fought.

        I completely agree with you ... In the early post-war films, when many had fresh scary memories of the war, and there were still incomparably more Veterans than now, no one painted over enemy symbols on technology, on flags. I think people who lived in that period of time better understood the need to preserve everything as it is, without embellishment, which many generations would remember ...
