Messerschmitt Bf-108 Taifun


The Messerschmitt Bf-108 Taifun was designed as a four-seat sports and recreation airplane to compete in the 4th Challenge International de Tourisme. The prototype first flew in 1934 and was followed by the Bf-108B in 1935 with the Argus As-10 engine rated at 230 horsepower. The Bf-108 set a number of endurance records in the 1930s. The Luftwaffe pressed the Bf-108 into service as a personnel transport and liaison aircraft. The Bf-108 would become the basis for the Bf-109 fighter. 885 Bf-108 were built during production. Only a handful of these aircraft survive in flyable condition today. This Bf-108 was manufactured in 1942.
