About Me
I am 29 years old and have been interested in the Luftwaffe since I was about 14, but only began to concentrate on the Focke-Wulf FW 190 in February 1999. Since then I have spent a great deal of time trying to find out all I can about Kurt Tank's aircraft, and this website has been created so I can share my knowledge of the aircraft with you. I hope I have achieved my purpose and I hope that the page is informative. Thanks for visiting.

Air War Publications
My main focus these days is Air War Publications, a small aviation history publishing company established by myself and my good friend Morten Jessen. We are working on many exciting projects, and released our first book, Focke-Wulf Fw 190 in the Battle for Sicily, in late-2010.

The site has been up since December 2000, and averages about 100 visitors a day.
