That is a mosquito, it was made of wood and a very fast plane. They used them for recon mostly, as few were armed. Pinky, the tail gunner in my dad's outfit (the eigth Air Force) shot down the wing commander when he flew into the bomber group. He was told NOT to fly into the group if the Germans sent up fighters as the sillouette is much like the ME-110. He got to spend 3 years in a POW camp to think about the next time.

TBM. Bush was shot down at Chi Chi Jima and was lucky enough to spend a day in the water before rescue. The other guys that were caught by the Japs had there livers eaten for dinner.

No because it wasn't an ME109 it is a :








Focke Wolfe Fw-190

The Fw-190 was one of the greatest fighters of WWII. Designed by Dr. Kurt Tank, it built as a sturdy fighter-interceptor to augment the Messerschmitt Bf 109. It made its first flight on June 1, 1939 and first saw combat over northwestern France in September 1941.
The early Fw 190A's were superior to the Spitfire Mk.V. This development spurred the continuing evolution of the Spitfire with ever more powerful engines, which pushed evolution of the Fw-190. It was a better fighter than the Bf-109, except at high altitude, and it carried much heavier armament. A major advantage was the wider stance the aircraft had. The Messerschmitt proved to be easy to bounce onto a wing-tip on landing due to the narrow landing gear. The Focke Wulf did not have this problem, which saved pilots lives and aircraft. It was also successfully developed into a series of fighter-bombers, culminating in the superb TA 152. 20,001 Fw-190s were built..

Grumman/GM TBF/TBM "Avenger"

In response to a 1939 requirement for a carrier-based torpedo-bomber to replace the TBD "Devastator", Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation produced the TBF "Avenger" equipped with an electrically powered gun turret and an internal bomb-bay for four 500 lb bombs or an aerial torpedo. Crewed by a pilot, radioman and gunner, the TBF could cruise at 145 mph. In 1942 General Motors also built the TBF known as the TBM. A total of 9,842 TBF/TBM "Avengers" were produced, the last of which was retired in 1954.
The combat debut of the TBF occurred during the Battle of Midway when six of them were launched from Midway without fighter escort to attack the approaching Japanese fleet. Jumped by "Zeros" during their torpedo runs, five were shot down while the sixth was so badly shot-up (pilot/radioman wounded, gunner killed) that it was scrapped after landing at Midway with bomb-bay doors open and only one wheel extended.
In 1944 while flying from an aircraft carrier on a bombing mission against a Japanese radio station on Chichi Jima, the TBM of LTJG George Bush was severely damaged by anti-aircraft fire. Despite a flaming engine, he continued his dive to score a direct hit before being forced to bail-out over water where he was picked up by a submarine and subsequently returned to his squadron to fly additional combat missions. Both of his crewmen failed to survive. Other combat highlights involving the "Avenger" included: sinking of six Japanese transports in one day by aircraft from a single squadron; sinking of the world's largest battleships - the Musashi and Yamato; shooting down ninety-eight planes in aerial combat; and sinking thirty-one German submarines in the Atlantic. In 1945, five TBMs from NAS Ft. Lauderdale on a routine training flight disappeared in an area known as the "Bermuda Triangle". Their location remains a mystery to this day.
