Saw this baby at the local airport a couple of weeks ago, and am only now getting around to posting. A Focke-Wulfe Fw 44 Stieglitz, which was a principal training plane for the Luftwaffe. This one was built in Yugoslavia in 1946, flown as a trainer by the Yugoslav air force, used by a defector in 1966 to fly to Austria and crash landed (the guy was a Mig pilot and wasn't used to this kind of landing gear), and "imported" into the US by the head of Lockheed Martin (I think) in 1968. All this according to the owner. The spondels (is that the right word?) are Yugoslav air force, and the unit insignia is some Yugoslav Mig squadron from the 90s.
Being a military aviator, I can tell you watching those videos turns my stomach with the exception of the two Blue Angel passes. Those are all pilots violating regulations and risking lives. I have lost many friends from mishaps they couldn't avoid. These individuals are putting themselves at great risk and thier friends at the great risk of grief for with these stunts.
I will illustrate it with the following link. Please watch the whole 10 minutes if you can. It is video footage of the B-52 crash at Fairchild AFB. It was compiled during the mishap investigation from footage of the same pilot. He had a reputation for unecessary risk. All of the clips of passes he is flying violate guidance for aerial demonstrations in some form or another for that aircraft even though he was a demo pilot. That is why the mishap board complied the video. Take particular note of the clip at 4:14. He is flying an impromptu low-level performance for friends at Yakima Range in Washington. He told them his plans and told them to take their cameras out for a show. Totally illegal. The formation with the A-10s he shoots is illegal as well. Result was he thought he was bulletproof. He crashed taking three innocent lives with him less than a week later. You can even hear the people at th airshows who know the aircraft saying they haven't seen a plane bank that high. Read some of the comments from Youtube and you will see the community was not suprised to see this happen.
You should go back to the airport and *****slap the owner for making you look stupid on the internet in front of people you'll never meet, who may or may not be real.
Oh, I don't know. I expect there would be quite a bit of red tape in importing a airplane built behind the iron curtain in those days. Easier to say its a "Bucker Jungmann" when it comes time to import and register the thing in 1968. Who would check after all? Its a biplane.
