Chino Planes of Fame Museum - Here this Messerschmitt Bf-109 awaits its restoration. On 4th April 1942 Widowitz was shot down by a Hurricane & made a forced wheels up landing on a frozen lake where it laid until 2003 when it was eventually retrieved. There are several bullet holes on the air frame including small arms .03 calibre penetrations as well as a very large cannon-projectile hole in the right wing root. It looks interesting as it is, but also it will be nice to see it restored.

After ~30,000 saved photos on my HDD that took ~8.7 GBs of space I'm going to try smth other. For example to keep them here. Easier & faster.
