Ever Wanted to Fly A Bf109?


Tell me that's not cool.
Have you ever wanted to fly a Bf109 but were not allowed to because, as you were told, only Gods could fly it?  Yeah, me too.  I've never had the money to be considered a God but one day in the future I may be able to ride with one (hopefully not the God who dinged this one) in a rare two seater Bf109-G12.  Yes, that's right; while repairs are made to the wrecked single seater pictured below, two seater modifications are being added.
Thanks to an owner with vision and work being carried out by Meier Motors, the single seater pictured above will one day look like those in the black and white photos from WWII. Additionally, and so you can get that full God-like experience, it will be powered with a Daimler motor.  If you're going to soar with eagles you might as well do it with a proper powerplant don't you think?  Me too.  And like you, I can't wait to see this bird in the sky.
By the way, does anybody know how much it costs to be a God for a day?
This could be you.  Watch the Meier Motors website for updates.
