**ONLY ONE LEFT! THIS ITEM IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION**

Fifty One year old Hauptman Wilhem Meyer Meyerweissflog, had been an observer with the German air force during WW1. It is uncertain in what capacity he had been attached to JG 53, but he had flown on operations on a number of occasions. Having returned from leave during the evening of 5 th September, he spotted a large number of aircraft taking off, and decided to join them in his Bf-109. By the time he had taken off, he was flying alone, and was to be picked off by a Spitfire, which was probably flown by experienced Australian Ace, Flg Off Pat Hughes of No. 234 squadron. With an overheating engine, Meyerweissflog was forced to crash land, in Kent, and duly taken prisoner. He was eventually repatriated in 1944.

This aircraft crash landed at Monkton, Kent on 5 th September 1940, the pilot Hauptmann Wilhem Meyerweissflog was captured unhurt. The RAF Crash Report, indicates that the aircraft was camouflaged in light navy grey with a red band around the cowling and with red/white spinner and white wing tips.
