Reconstruction of the aircraft Fw190A-5

Prologue...


Back in the distant 1991, a group of “initiative” comrades undertook to find a German plane that landed in a forest near the city of Kirishi. They found the plane thanks to a pair of vodka bottles and a local jaeger ...

History Last departure:

In a hot Monday morning in July 19 1943, the sergeant-major Paul Rat sitting in the cockpit of his Fw190A-5 / U3 WNr.1227, "White A" from the 4./JG 54, flew from the airfield Siverskaya, carrying a bomb under the fuselage SC250. Departure was made by a pair of staffel cars, it was about 15 minutes of flight to the front line, having flown over the front line on the Dvina River, the pair moved further east. In the Voybokalo area, planes attacked a Soviet armored train. During the attack, the car was damaged by air defense fire, one of the hits was broken into the tank and the pilot was injured. The pilot until the last pulled to the base, but having lost a lot of blood, he went for a forced landing. The plane landed in the clearing in the middle of the forest, after landing the pilot died.

        This is the huckster tradition. If “Russians” is meant under “with us,” then they did not have such a “tradition” and cannot exist. Whoever went into huckster is not truly Russian by definition.

During the visits, I look at her and wonder who she belonged to and where her owner found peace. Now behind these items is the history and fate of people who went through the hell of World War II.

    I watched a program like these planes were being restored in the United States, fanatics of their craft, the most interesting instance of the I-16 that was taken out of the swamp, completely restored, prepared for flight, but the Americans were afraid to fly on it and were perplexed how the Russians flew on such a plane. And we not only flew, but also won. It is a pity that this is possible only in America.

      Not the Americans. New Zealander Tim Wellis. In 1992, six I-16 and I-153 aircraft were found in the tundra, restored for his money in Novosibirsk. The biggest success, the ASh-62IR engine with An-2, the motor originates from the M-62 engine, which was used on I-16 type 18 and type 27 fighters. Actually (with the performance of aerobatics) I-16 was piloted by Mark Hannah and a week after the flight on the Hurricane said, “I would rather fight on the I-16.” Hannah only confirmed the assessment of the British "firewood" by Stalin's falcons, who did not want to change from direct "donkeys" to overseas "hurricanes" by direct order. Hannah believes the I-16 is quite comparable with the first Messerschmitts.

        The leaders did not cover the swastika, but the authors of the article who posted these photos. Perhaps with the recommendation of stupid censors (editors). A little crescent moon with a star does not fade in the images, although they fought against the Turks for several centuries in a childish way.

          So not for nothing that they did it. Censorship is afraid. In Novosibirsk we had a man (recently died) a former tanker, so he made copies of tanks (by the way, his product was filmed in the White Tiger). Once local guys decided to play war, in the sense of reconstruction, built, drove a replica of the T-3, played, it was covered in the local press and the prosecutor's office opened a criminal case for the propaganda of fascism. At the same time, models of German tanks and planes with the corresponding symbols are quietly sold in children's stores. The main thing is that everyone understands the idiocy of the prosecutor’s actions, but they can’t do anything ...

        At one time, even images of German aircraft were difficult to find. How many kilometers of film were shot, where the wonderful play of actors, in films about the war, is spoiled by ridiculous constructions from plywood under German tanks, or sports planes issued as fighters of the Second World War. Each instance, like this FW-190, is a find not only for lovers of the history of military equipment, but also for cinema. After all, it has already reached the point that the AN-2 is issued for the WWII plane during filming, although there is already computer graphics, there are a lot of blunders there.

    In the Vologda region in 2010, not far from Sheksna, they found a downed y88 in a swamp. Even the bodies survived somehow. Individual nodes are like new. The engines are perfectly preserved. No, to give at least something to the local museum. Also gone (they say ...) somewhere. But there are pictures.

    At our best, his fate is to be outwardly tinted and abandoned in a museum. And this is not surprising. To restore it, you need to invest a lot more than when you built it in 1943 at the Focke-Wulf Flugzeugbau (you won’t take parts in the warehouse).
    And the plane is alive while it is in the sky. On earth, this is miserable trash.

    Not modestly, but I can’t help but boast I saw the flight of this restored FW-190 in the small town of Everett near Seattle, there is a cool small museum with a restoration workshop. It is called the Flying Heritatage Collection (literally: flying heritage, - Flying Legends). This museum is famous for the fact that all copies are volatile. In the summer, a couple of times a month they arrange summer days. Cool there and it costs a penny! Here is the flight of this restored Fw 190A-5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhAgU-GUc1Q They already have this second Fokker. There is also the FW 190 D-13 (DORA). And Mesak Emil BF 109 E-3. From Soviet technology Po-2 I-16 MiG-29 UB (the Germans sold) and the latest acquisition (most recently) of the Il-2 is its flight http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=qF9VZSkVZI0&NR=1 to Unfortunately I didn’t see the flight of IL-2.

    I remembered one article on a similar topic. I don’t remember the place of events. During the war, he sat on a forced FW-190 due to a failure in the synchronizer settings, as a result of which the screw was damaged. Accidentally in the forest was found. The plane was on the chassis without the slightest sign of damage. The search engines reported to the local military registration and enlistment office and asked for help with the removal and for subsequent placement in the museum. When, after some time, they arrived with the necessary equipment for towing an airplane, then instead of it there were several 200s with a firearm from among local organized crime groups (bandits were not divided). As indicated in the article, at that time, for such a rarity over the hill, 4 lemons of greenery could be raised.

    If I’m not mistaken, in the Yakovlev Design Bureau “Speed”, earlier containers were in the yard with disassembled aircraft, such as the Yak-1, Yak-3, Yak-9. You can only collect them and fly. At the parade, for example by May 9th. Just who will pay? Maybe there are enthusiasts who will do it for free, but only the bureaucracy will beat off the whole hunt to collect and fly. Until the president orders, the government will not be scratched. In general, it seems that in Russia the president is deciding matters that other people should decide. The road, there to repair, a new roof for veterans to make, a lift of wood to the village.

      After the aircraft is restored, decorated and ready to fly, it receives tax. It is impossible to convince authorities that a retroplane is a museum exhibit rather than a regular car.

    It is doubtful that the "Fokker" managed to restore "completely." those. in the original-auto-authentic state. Devices, equipment and some nodes, on it are inevitably modern. Although of course, we must pay tribute to American aviation enthusiasts, the culture, traditions and experience of restoring old cars, they have a very high level.
