109G-2 Walk around
I've had several opportunities to photograph W/NR.10639 overall several years and across two locations. The walk around now features both cockpit and exposed engine details. Black 6 of III./JG77 was captured at Gambut Main (east Libya) by Flt Lt Ken McRae, Engineer Officer of No.3 Squadron Royal Australian Air Force.
Upon capture damage to the airframe was repaired by using parts from a 109F w/nr 9678 (tailwheel, tail plane, canopy and one propeller blade). Later on the port wing was replaced with parts from (possibly) another former JG 77 Bf109G-2/Trop, w/nr 10533.
All of this makes it one of the most authentic 109 survivors.
