First engine runs for Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar’s Bf 109E

The Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar’s Messerschmitt Bf 109E “White 14” recently made its first engine tests. The aircraft was built in 1939 and lost in 1942 on the Russian front. It was salvaged in 1992 and changed hands several times before reaching the UK where it is being restored and should fly again soon.

    This airplane flew regularly while it was owned by Russell Aviation Group in Canada.
    Would have been amazing to have seen it in the Dunkirk movie. Quite sad this opportunity was missed.
