I just spent an afternoon visiting the FHC up in Everett WA. This is not a museum....but a personal collection of (mostly) flyable WWII and WWI planes owned by Paul Allen. These planes have been beautifully restored and maintained and it was a joy to see these planes.....some of them extremely rare. I took a gaggle of photos and thought the forum might like to see them.

Indeed. I would also like to discourage you from posting any sort of picture of any sort of military aircraft. That's just not what this forum is about.

k. took a while to reduce the photos down to a size the forum can handle. Hopefully the quality hasn't suffered too much.

Ok....first off on the tour.

Very nice!  Quality is fine.

The Russian 'Washing Machine Charlie'?  Not quite the U-2 that first comes to mind.

And what looks like a Mosca and an Emil yet to come?

Yes...only more numerous and organized. U-2's were mainly used at night on ground harrassment raids. A good number of women pilots flew them...hence "The Night Witches" story

Very often used for nuisance night raids over the Eastern Front.

Okay, LogBoy, bring on the next one...

I have read about this colection before, but I have yet to make it up their to check it out, the Colection in Tilamook is of a similar vein, most are owned by a man who made his money logging, or so I understand. Thanks for showing the picks

If memory serves that unit they refer to above for the U-2 was the most decorated unit is the soviet AF during the war, receaving more "Heros of the Soviet Union, than any other.

printed for clarity

Place in history: In 1937, Germany's Reich Air Ministry sought designs for a new fighter to replace its first generation of monoplane interceptors, worried that future Allied designs might outperform it. The result was the Fw 190, which immediately proved to be superior to the British Spitfire. The Fw 190 was also more heavily armed, carrying four 20 mm cannons in addition to two 13 mm machine guns. Some later versions featured a 30 mm cannon that fired through the propeller hub. With its high kill rate, the Fw 190 lived up to its name of "Würger" or "Butcher Bird."

This airplane: This is the only long-nosed Fw 190 D-13 to have survived the war. It entered service in March of 1945 and served with the JG (Jagdgeschwader) 26 wing, with Major Franz Götz as the plane's pilot and the wing's commodore. In May, 1945, after the end of the war, Major Götz flew this D-13 to the RAF base in Flensburg, Germany, and surrendered it. This airplane has been restored close to flyable condition, but it will not be flown because it is such a rare example of the Fw 190 line.
