The Focke-Wulf is a German fighter or persuit-plane deploeyd during WW2. It is one of the best fighters of its generation. From 1942 on it complemented the Messerschmitt Bf 109as the standard fighters of the Luftwaffe. 20,000 of these warbirds were built until the end of the war.

The different types of aircraft were awarded in-house names of birds: the Fw 190 was labeled „Shrike“. British pilots named the plane „Butcher-Bird“, because its performance and armament were superior to theSupermarine Spitfireand the Hawker Hurricane.

Our Focke-Wulf Fw A-8 is the first originally restored specimen of this legendary fighter in a German museum.
