The guy posted them as Spits but i'm leaning towards Tempests. FW 190, Fury and even Stuka has been thrown around but no definitive answer. No other information has been put forward besides the film being processed from a 1930's camera. All i've done is upsize the pics and flip the lower ones, for some reason the opposite direction works better for my eyes.

Glad I am not a WW II AAA gunner!!!
I first thought Fw 190s, but then upon reading your message I would agree, those could very well be Tempest with the massive tail, and a more or less elliptical clipped wing.
But then there is zero sign of the chin radiator... bringing me back to the Fw 190s. Maybe, just maybe the tail is not that massive duh

I’ll give it a short burst, see how it goes...

Cheers,
Slug

Vienna, 2nd rock left.
Tempest would be my guess too. The "half-eliptical" shape of the wing rules out a FW190 in my opinion.

Film from a camera from the 1930s. Only if the camera was used in the 1940s..

Could be a Fury or Seafury also.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Tempest 2 I reckon also. Can understand why they were often the victim of 'friendly fire' as very similar to 190 when seen in the heat of combat.

Initial identification, every aircraft artefact is a 'Spitfire'. An example of 'spitfire Snobbery' perhaps, as exhibited by Luftwaffe pilots in the Battle of Britain; "Nein Nein was shot down by Spitfire, not Hurricane!"
Nerd that I be, I had to join a BBC forum to point out that the aircraft model featured in a series called the 'Repair Shop', a programme in which much loved and sentimental seemingly irreparable heirlooms and family treasures are restored was in fact a P47.

The model in question was made by an RAF Bomber Command airman for his child just before he was killed over Germany.
