The January 1996 issue of ‘Flypast’ recounted a visit to Farnborough by Mike Bowyer after the end of World War Two, where he gives his personal take on Luftwaffe aircraft and equipment put on display in October 1945
Luftwaffe Laid Bare
I KNEW, AS I approached the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE), that the event would be memorable. Arrayed for scrutiny was the fruit of victory. Stupendously it became a revelation of incredibly advanced thought and technology influential to this day. No airshow or exhibition has, even remotely, equalled that fabulous Farnborough 'Exhibition of German Aircraft and Equipment' held between October 29 and November 11, 1945.
