Default Bf 109 Structure

Just stumbled on this forum.

Some great details of warbirds that I have not seen before.

It's always interesting to see current era photos of 109s as you really have a feel for how small the aircraft actually is.

Great find Krupi, thanks!

I have stood next to a flyable Emil.

It is tiny by any standard, shockingly so. A Spitfire looks big next to it, and a Spit looks small compared to say a P40 or P51.

Yes, the 109 is a tiny aircraft. IIRC that was a design decision, to make it harder to hit.

I have sat in a few spits....not so huge inside, the hurri 'is' huge and the Mustang isn't exactly small, but the 109 is very diminutive....until it's in the air and you can hear the growl you don't get the warbird vibe.
