...the flight of the - literally - brand new Fw-190-A built by Flugwerks.

It would be great to see a whole new generation of brand new warbirds being built, especially considering the rate the still-flying originals seem to be going down...

Awesome... any particular reason why FW has gears down the whole flight? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
My guess is that they don't wanna risk anything (for instance, maybe gear failure to deploy down...? who knows...)

Precisely. First test flights are usually done with the gear down and are usually a series of systems checks while the craft is flying.

It's just a real shame it's a FW190! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

A beautiful sight to see. I'd really love to see one flying up close one of these days.

Even with this precaution, the new-build 262 had one of its main gear lay over on a landing. Complete disaster was narrowly averted.

It is very nice to see the full size repros. What type of engine does the repro 109 use?

Edit...Oops, I meant 190.

Beautiful bird. I wonder what the puff of black smoke was at 2:47.

Did they rebuild the BMW801 or did they use some other aero engine?

Doesn't sound like an Allison.

This FW190 is using the ASh-82FN engine. A cookie to the first person to figure out which other WWII plane uses this particular engine.

Apparently this engine has enough spare parts around to be used.

Bingo! I would have also accepted La-7 or Tu-2.

I can only assume that because the ASh-82FN was used in aircraft post war that there is a considerable surplus of parts available for us. I've also read something about the engine being manufactured in China under license which would also help with availability.

Pretty sure that later versions of the Pe8 were powered by that engine as well. Too lazy to google it though.

Wow, cool....


Man look at how much room the pilot takes up in the cockpit.

Looked like a trial landing approach then go-around. The black puff seems to correspond to the pilot pushing the throttle up for the go-around.
