Bf (Me) 109 – purchase and sale
Two-seater Bf (Me) 109 G-12
The collection of historic and airworthy aircraft operated jointly by the Messerschmitt Foundation and Airbus at the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight in Manching also included three Bf (Me) 109 aircraft. All powered with historical DB 605 piston engine. Only one of the three Bf (Me) 109 was airworthy in the last few years. The Messerschmitt Foundation sold the Bf (Me) 109 G-6 to relieve the technology workload at the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight . The Bf (Me) 109 G-6 went to a buyer in Germany.
The Messerschmitt Foundation purchased a two-seater Bf (Me) 109 G-12 with Rolls-Royce Merlin engine that had become available. As this version of the Bf (Me) 109 is equipped with a Rolls Royce Merlin, the Messerschmitt Foundation expects that this will enrich its collection of airworthy Messerschmitt aircraft. Last but not least, the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight also has better opportunities for pilot training on this two-seater aircraft type.
The Bf (Me) 109 G-12 will be operated by Hangar 10 in Zirchow / Usedom to relieve the technology workload at the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight.
