Messerschmitt Bf 109 under construction

Picture of a Messerschmitt Bf 109 under construction. With the engine cowling missing, many details of the aircraft can bee seen, including the cowling machine guns, seen in their blast tubes at the top of the picture. The picture also gives a good view of the undercarriage, partly lowered, and the cockpit canopy.
Messerschmitt Bf 109: Pt. 1, John R. Beaman, Jr. This work provides a good technical history of the 109, tracing the development of the fighter from the early prototypes up to the 109E, the model used during the Battle of Britain. [see more]
