Flying Heritage Collection, Focke Wulf 190A, Everett, WA
USA
The German Focke Wulf 190 was the most advanced radial engine fighter in the world in the fall of 1941. This Focke Wulf was built in 1943 and modified for ground attack duties. It was shot down in Russia during an attack on a Soviet supply train. It crashed in a wetland, where it remained until a warbird hunter discovered it in the 1980s. It was airlifted out by helicopter and eventually restored to the flying condition it is in today. This plane is the only original flyable Focke-Wulf 190A fighter to fly with a genuine BMW 801 engine.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
