Focke-Wulf Fw 190 by tr4br Focke-Wulf Fw 190 by tr4br
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger (Shrike) was a German single-seat, single radial engine fighter aircraft designed in the late 1930s. In spite of its successes, it never entirely replaced the Bf 109. The Fw 190 was well liked by its pilots. Some of the Luftwaffe's most successful fighter aces flew the Fw 190, including Otto Kittel with 267 victories, Walter Nowotny with 258 victories and Erich Rudorffer with 222 claimed kills. A great many of their kills were claimed while flying the Fw 190.

I believe the one you have there is "Black 1" from Jagdgeschwader 2.

Great shot, you got the panning technique down. Looks like you used the 1/250 shutter speed, which is what I use on prop planes. Good capture of a great subject.

The most attractively scariest plane of its time O_O

It is, in fact, my top favorite in WWII

Beautiful plane, wrong side of the war.... Why is it that German engineering fascinates me so?

Ta-152 (I think it was) was based on this great bird but was superior. It only came into service far too late to make any difference in the war.

Ta-152 was High Altitude Interceptor for Home Defense and FW-190-D9 was a upgrade with V12 lineal engine very used to defend Me-262 airfields from enemy fighters and Reich Defense too.

The "Butcherbird". I guess it was one of the great planes of all time!
