FW 190 A-2 or A-3 W.Nr 518 'White 1 + ' (D. Wadman)
I am sure I have seen this aircraft before, but cannot remember where. Can anyone help me with caption information for this photo of an FW 190 A. It is one of the following:
FW 190 A-2 W.Nr 0120 518
FW 190 A-2 W.Nr 0125 518
FW 190 A-3 W.Nr 0130 518
FW 190 A-3 W.Nr 0135 518
Of note in the photograph are the 12 black victory bars on the yellow rudder.
