About this product
- DescriptionWhen the German Focke Wulf Fw190 fighter burst onto the scene over France in 1941 it took the RAF by surprise, outperforming the Spitfire Mk V. At the time the RAF described the performance gap as 'a quantum leap'. Its superior performance on the Eastern Front had a significant impact in the air war against the Soviet Union. Graeme Douglas gets under the skin of the Fw190 with the new-build Focke Wulf Fw190A-8 and D-9 models built by the Flug Werk company in Germany. He also describes flying and maintaining the Fw190 in combat.
- Author BiographyGraeme Douglas is the author of the Haynes Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and Consolidated B-24 Liberator Manuals. He has extensive experience of working on preserved aircraft, including B-17 'Mary Alice' at Duxford and the privately-owned B-17 'Sally B'. He lives in Essex.
