This Emil was built in Leipzig in Sept. 1940. On 27th Nov. it took off from Peuplingues flown by 21-year-old Leutnant Wolfgang Teumer of 2/JG51 on a sweep over Kent. At 1550 h he was engaged by Flt Lt George P Christie DFC, flying a 66 Sqdn Spitfire from Biggin Hill, who was able to damage the radiator forcing Lt. Teumer to belly land at Manston. Repaired using parts from other 109s and given the RAF serial DG200 she underwent extensive performance trials. Eventually donated to the RAF Museum in 1978.
