Here, a couple of shots of the JU88 at the Bodø Museum in Norway, taken 25 January 2015.

The Belgian Ju 88 example is owned by Chris Vanhee, I stayed with him back in 2000 for several days. He had major sections and almost everything to fit it out, but he will never get it to airworthy, he is one man with limited funds. IIRC he has been looking to sell what he has in recent years, but am not sure how that is progressing.

AFAIK, no examples in Europe are being rebuilt to airworthy, but there are several static museum restorations, mostly in Norway.

Thanks for the info Dave M2.

So, we now have deduced there are two separate Belgian Ju-88's. So, that begs the question - what is the status of Eric Vormezeele's Ju-88?

Wow. It's a surprise. Never heard from about this project. Thanks for the information.

I don't believe EV has a Ju 88, Vanhee is the only one in Belgium.

O.K., thanks for the info. I could have sworn that Vormezeele had a Ju-88 at one time a while back.

There is probably one at the bottom of the Black Sea, along with a whole lot of other types, in anerobic conditions.

There are several more various types at the bottom of Lake Jonsvatnet, Norway if I recall. Now if they will allow salvage and export.

While never abundant, we did have some B-26 Marauder flyers in previous decades. Would love to see one fly.

Please, correct me because very likely I am wrong.

BUT, I seem to recall an F9F brought back from Argentina, and I was told -never saw it- that it was flyable, and based at the Brazoria County airport.

I know that I have photos of it being removed from the shipping crate...


Saludos,


Tulio
