Messerschmitt Bf 109G to fly again in Austria

Messerschmitt Bf 109G-2 in service with the Finnish Air Force.

Since 2006, Michael Rinner has been building a Messerschmitt Bf 109G in Althofen, Austria, using newly-manufactured parts that were either reverse-engineered or based on original drawings. The fuselage is now largely complete and the next major step is creating a set of wings for the aircraft. It is hoped that it will fly in late 2013.

The aircraft is expected to carry the colours of a Bf 109G-2 from JagdGeschwader 52, based on the Eastern front in May 1943.
