#SOLD: 1944 Messerschmitt Bf-109G-12 • HISTORICAL AIRCRAFT FOR SALE • The only flying G-12 in the world! Trainer version of the famous Messerschmitt Bf-109. Airframe 16hrs TSO, 82hrs TSO on Merlin 500-45, OWN A PIECE OF GERMAN HISTORY!
The Messerschmitt BF-109G-12 is the trainer version of the Messerschmitt BF-109G. Starting in 1944, some BF-109G-2, BF-109G-3, BF-109G-4, and BF-109G-6's were converted to two seat trainers and designated as BF-109G-12's. A second cockpit was installed for the instructor behind the pilot and a elongated canopy added. The so-called Rustsatze filed modification kits and Umrust-Bausatze factory conversion kits were part of a system promulgated by the RLM throughout the German military aviation industry.
The G-12 has had its fuel capacity significantly increased with the installation of an additional fuselage fuel tank taking the new fuel capacity to 320 litres. This is over double the original fuel capacity and now gives the aircraft far greater endurance and hence ease of operation.
The ability to fly this ultra-rare and unique Me109 with a Merlin engine provides a more practical and sustainable basis for the operation of the aircraft.
