Roskilde Airshow 2013, Messerschmitt Me 109 G-4, the flight
The rare Messerschmitt Me 109 [Red 7] seen on the ground and in the air on
saturday the 17th of August at Roskilde Airshow 2013 in Denmark. All though
the pictures are far from perfect you can enjoy the fantastic sound from
that machine in the air. App. 95% of the total flight is recorded in this
video. In the show the next day it did make an emergency landing in a
cornfield near the airport. Luckily with no harm to the skilled pilot Klaus
Plasa, and only minor damage to the plane. The plane is own by EADS - a
huge european aerospace organisation and has home at Flugmuseum
Messerschmitt (Messerschmitt Stiftung) near München. There exist only very
few Me 109 mounted with the original Daimler-Benz DB-605 engine. The plane
itself is not quite original as it is licence build in Spain in 1950. The
plane have participated in the famous movie The Battle of Britain and has
crashed several times during its long life.
News May 2014:
The accident report from the belly landing have been published in May 2014
and reveal why the engine did stop in the air on that Sunday. The reason
was that this Me109 is not intended to do negative G flight, for example,
level flight upside down which the airplane did immediately before the
engine stopped. In the plane's Flight Manual, there was no restrictions
about that, and therefore the pilot could not know about that limitation.
Restriction markings regarding negative G fligh is now put into the Flight

During the early war years the Bf109 was one of the world's finest single
seat fighters. Its basic design provided the potential for it to take new
engines and armament so that it remained the backbone of the Luftwaffe
fighter forces throughout World War Two.
The Bf109E was an improved version of an aircraft designed by Willi
Messerschmitt in 1935. It had proved to be a superb fighter during early
combat trials in the Spanish Civil War. Only when German fighter pilots met
the Spitfire in combat did they find an aircraft in some ways equal to
their own. The Bf109E was as fast as the Spitfire, faster than the Hurricane but could
Although a superb fighter it, like most of its contemporaries, was
under-gunned (a deficiency which was not remedied until the introduction of
the Bf109G) and had poor ground handling characteristics. Perhaps its worst
handicap, during the Battle of Britain, was its limited fuel capacity. This
meant limited range and endurance so, they could only remain over the
United Kingdom for a few minutes of combat before having to break off the
engagement and return to base.
With mounting medium bomber losses the Luftwaffe introduced a
fighter-bomber version in October 1940.
