Everett’s Flying Heritage Collection plans to make the public flying debut of its restored German Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-5 Saturday.
The airplane crashed in a marsh outside of Leningrad in 1943 and wasn’t found until 1989. It flew again last year after restoration in Arizona and was then trucked up to the Flying Heritage Collection, which reassembled it in April.
Saturday’s Fly Day is also scheduled to feature a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24 Liberator and P-51 Mustang from the Collings Foundationâ€™s Wings of Freedom tour, and the Flying Heritage Collection’s own P-51.
Events are scheduled to start at noon at the Flying Heritage Collection, 3407 109th Street S.W., in Everett. The event is free, but does not include admission to the collection hangar or tours of the Collings Foundation aircraft.
