I only just caught up with the other 2 threads, I love these rarer birds. Excepting the 108 Taifun, too many dodgey war films used them as surrogate 109's. Von Ryan's Express, and 633 Sqaudron spring immediately to mind, but I think there were more.

Thanks for your intensive scanning (for the other two threads too) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

By the way what were the '109s' in the last Indiana Jones?

Your usual high quality stuff sir.

Must be a lot of work to physically scan each photo. Any idea how long it takes to do one photo?

Finally, a photograph of a Ju 88 with rocket tubes. I'd read about Ju 88s sent up with rockets but never found any photographic evidence. Many thanks!

Anytime guys. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I generally scan all the pages at 800 DPI which on this scanner takes a long time 2-3 minutes. Then it takes time for the image to load in my ArcSoft Photostudio program and to downsize it to 30% size. I give it a little sharpening to get the best possible image quality possible. Also, the reason I scan at 800 DPI is for QUALITY. I want the images to be HQ for viewing pleasure. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Nice picture of the Caproni CA 111, never heard about that aircraft. Has about the same performance numbers as a Cessna 208 Caravan. And I thought Cessna invented this class of aircraft. Looks like the Italians beat them to it 50 years earlier! Keep the pictures coming. Did anyone notice in your earlier picture thread that one ofe the 110's has jumo(I think) engines. Never seen that before

Unfortunately, I think they are exhaust dampers (being a night GA a/c), like on the 210 night-fighter further up the page. Be a bit hard to synch the rockets with the props anyway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Will most likely have part 4 and 5 up tomorrow.

I also have a magazine with HUNDREDS OF BF-109 SHOTS, BLACK AND WHITE AND COLORED taken throughout the war. So we'll have mostly E, F, G and even K shots. PATIENCE, PATIENCE! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Hi Christian,

I own a Log Book (FlugBuch) from a 109 pilot.

This scan is of his first flight in a 109 and mentions his view of the experience at the top of the page and dated 1942.

Log Books were official documents and it was 'frowned upon' to make such comments.

He wrote 'Start auf Bf 109!'.
