it is a good plane but the only thing is finding what squadron it was on and where it operated

Enthusiasts,
There is an original FW-190A-8 being restored at the Warbird Restoration Museum in Kissimmee Florida (suburb of Orlando). It was crashed in Norway after fighting a losing battle with a P-51. It was recovered on the side of a mountain recently. It was purchased by a wealthy German businessman who is paying a hefty price to have it put back together. He demanded originality. I talked with one of the mechanics who is working on it, and he said that they are going to restore the BMW engine to original specs but it was going to cost a fortune, It's tail is currently not attached and it's beat up, but there is no doubt what your looking at when you walk up to it. Gave me chill bumps! Surprisingly, the pilot who jumped out of this aircraft at a couple of hundred feet and promptly bounced on the snow covered mountain (thus saving him from certain death), is still alive. He signed the fuselage. I was told that he got quite a kick out of seeing his steed again! The restore will take about 3 to 4 years, so if you and the kids are coming to Disney, take a side trip to this museum. They also have B-17's, an F4U-Corsair, a P-40, and various other planes that are being restored to flyable condition. Personally, I have every intention of being there in 3 or 4 years when that BMW cranks up and the test pilot takes it to the air. It may be the only time to hear a FW-190 as she would have sounded in 44'. The repros done by FlugWerk in Germany are beautiful, but they have Chinese engines. You can contact the museum about updates as to when the FW-190 will be finished. Their number is 407-933-1942. Have a good one!
