FW 190 “White One” now with Collings Foundation

The FW 190 “White One” that has been undergoing restoration for the past couple of years in Kissimmee has been moved to American Aero Services in New Smyrna Beach to be restored to flight for Collings Foundation.

This aircraft saw action in WW2 in JG2 as part of the Luftwaffe and will make an excellent addition to the Colling’s lineup of warbirds.

From early 2000’s when it was at the Flying Tiger Museum
