    OT: Two beautyfull Ladies at age 75 (pic-heavy)

    Right, today there where two 75th anniversaries at Ober-Mörlen near Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
    Messerschmitt Bf108 D-IBFW, the oldest airworthy Messerschmitt aircraft in the world and Focke Wulf Fw44 Stieglitz D-EMOF both where born in 1937 and celebrated their anniversary today.
    Here's the both anniversaries in bright sunlight fresh off the digital scene catcher. Unfortunately captured with a crappy cheapo cam so forgive me for that.









    As a matter of fact, this today was the largest meeting of flyable Fw44 Stieglitz since WWII with 9 airworthy machines at a single airstrip.
    They took off in formations of three. What a sight, what a sound! Unfortunately it was absolutely pointless to capture any inflight shots with my crappy cam. :-(

    Beaufitul photos and aircraft, Mathias, and what a great event! It's amazing to see so many Fw 44's all together - I can't wait for the Classics Hangar Stieglitz!

    Beautiful indeed . One thing that I am always curious about with the oldies is the question of spar life . Is there such a thing ?

    I had the opportunity to fly on board Aer Lingus' 1936 DH 84a Dragon (Iolar/Eagle) a couple of weeks ago....a 76 year old beauty. She's immaculately maintained by her crew..

    LOL, performance was great and smooth as silk, not the slidest stutter!
    All aircraft came with full interiors modelled to real life specs.
    Little downside, auto-generated weather was a bit boring with almost no clouds at the sky.

    You got a proper look in the 'pits? That's what I call a proper airshow!

    Jupp, got the chance to climb all over the Bf108 and Fw44 and also over the EADS Bf108 with it's modern, imperial instrumentation.
    I made photos of every corner of the cockpits, I even photographed the underside of the seats from all angles, no joke.
    That's the benefit of an invitation only none public show. :-)
