Luftwaffe im Focus - Spezial No. 3

 
 Surely more has been written about the
 Bf 109 than any other aircraft used by the
 Luftwaffe, consequently it has become
 difficult to discover new photographs and
 unusual emblems. For this special edition
 we have assembled from our archive and
 the collections of our contributors a selec-
 tion of outstanding photographs, the maj-
 ority of which have never been published
 before.
 
 It will be divided into chapters by Jagdge-
 schwader, with unusual Bf 109s represen-
 ting almost every unit. Unusual camouflage
 schemes and markings will be depicted in
 black-and-white as well as colour photo-
 graphs. A large number of colour side-
 views will complete the special, which will
 contain more pages than a regular edition.
 
 
 
 ca. 60 pages, ca. 66 photos - including 6
 colourphotos in large scale, 6 coloured
 sideviews
