Hey dudes, Been a while since I last posted anywhere here, but recently I stumbled across a whole series of videos hosted by Peninsula Seniors on youtube. Before you start thinking what kind of time-shares I'm selling, they have created a series of aviation videos where they invite a speaker (or two) to give a lecture about a specific aspect or area of an aircraft, it's operation or development, at the Western Museum of Flight. The people are involved are usually pilots or occasionally engineers, and from what I've seen usually from Grumman/Northrop Grumman. They are very fascinating, and give a deeper look into the aircraft and their development that you don't get from random internet or wikipedia entries.
Focke Wulf 189. Tactical Recon Aircraft. I'mm guessing that this is what you saw.

As a lot of videos in this thread have disappeared, it seems like a good idea to post some of my 'goto' channels for this sort of stuff.
Starting with aircraft: https://www.youtube.com/user/Aircrewinterview/videos?pbjreload=10 seriously this is one of the best channels out there for the range of stuff covered. It does exactly what it says on the tin- it interviews aircrew (and the odd groundcrew) I will have to put a warning or 2 on this:- your marriage may suffer and some of the interviewees use adult language:
