Messerschmidt 109E Nose 50 Caliber Cannon
A mating of the most powerful engine available with the smallest possible airframe, for maximum performance, produced one of the most deadly of German fighter planes. This photo is of one of only two flying examples of this plane in the world. Many historians regard it as the most significant fighter plane of World War II, including its major role in the Battle of Britain.
