German-based warbirds restairation company Meier Motors has revealed on its website that it has been tasked to restore a Bf 109E to airworthiness. The aircraft, belonging to an unknown private owner, is an early-series “Emil” that took part in the final stages of the Spanish Civil War.

The aircraft’s fuselage is in poor condition but contains parts that can be reused. The wings are in better shape but will still require a lot of work.
