Duxford’s FW-190 to depart
FW 190A-8/N 980554 is to leave the UK for Germany.
Key - Gary Parsons
January 12: Flug Werke FW 190A-8/N 980554, long-term resident with Spitfire Limited at Duxford, is to leave the UK for Germany.
Since arriving in December 2006, speculation has been rife about whether the aircraft would fly - it was allocated the registration G-FWAB in February 2008, but an application for a Permit to Fly was never made and the registration cancelled yesterday.
It is believed that the FW-190 will be prepared for its first flight in Germany. 980554 is unique in that it contains some genuine A-9 parts (including the dataplate).

Bl***y typical..!! We really have become the
world's second rate nation. Nobody wants anything
to do with us anymore. You only have to look at the participation (or lack of it...) at UK airshows over the last six or seven years. Foreign shows
still get a reasonable turn out, I know, because we take the trouble to go to them.
How long are the 'Grey Dynasty' going to put up with this..?
No wonder Mr Blair going to take his toys where
the authorities rate what he has done.
It's all very depressing...

Sad, but entirely predictable - at least it's headed somewhere where it might actually get to fly!
It's hard to avoid the impression that the CAA are embarked on a sustained campaign to ground/remove anything that is or looks like an historic aircraft - I hope Hangar 11's paperwork is up to date!

Yes, but we did get to see one fly last July at Legends, and if that 'upset' the CAA, well, hard luck !! we loved it's appearance, and if we need to go away for the weekend abroad to see them, well
so be it. Thank God, for Ryanair, the airline that loves you, more than your 'own' family !!
