Focke Wulf Fw 190 IWM Gustav Gullberg.jpg

Werk Nr 733682 is a Focke-Wulf Fw190A-8/R6

History

Built by Ago at Oschersleben,[1] and assigned to IV./KG200,[2] this aircraft was described as being photographed with Werk Nr 2492, possibly due to it being mistakingly identified as part of the future Air Min 75, when it was actually used as part of Air Min 77.[3]

The Focke Wulf is now on static display at the Imperial War Museum, London.[2] The aircraft retains the Kugelverschraubung mit Sprengbolzen ("ball joints with explosive bolts"), the fittings underneath that attached it to its Junkers Ju 88 partner.[4]
