The gallery below contains walk around imagery of the Messerschmitt Bf-110 G-4/R6 which can be found in the RAF Museum at Hendon. Here we can see the aircraft in early 2018 where it was disassembled in several parts in order to open up additional space for the restoration for the BoB hangar.
Although the exact build date is unclear, it is suspected the aircraft was delivered sometime during 1944 as ‘werknummer’ 730301. After the war it was taken in custody by British forces in Denmark, where it had served with 1/Nachtjagdgeschwader 3 in defense of the night bombing raids by the British over Denmark and North-Germany. Despite the aircraft consisting of original parts, it had been repainted several times. Most notable was sometime during the sixties when it was kept in overal white primer, and in 1976 when it was stripped to bare metal and repainted to it’s original markings consisting of a blue/gray scheme with ID codes D5+RL.
