ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (11.03.08)

Aero-Linx!

Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough, if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this is done on the Internet.

The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into cyber-aero-space for awhile.

Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via Aero-Linx. Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments are always welcome, as well.

Aero-Linx: Bookie's Focke-Wulf 190 Page

Welcome to Bookie's Focke-Wulf 190 and Ta 152 page. This page is the result of a number of years of research into the aircraft featured, Kurt Tank's Focke-Wulf 190 / Ta 152. This aircraft performed outstandingly throughout World War II, serving in large numbers with the Luftwaffe, and also in a handful of smaller nation's air forces. It performed almost every role possible for a single-engined aircraft, and proved to be successful as a fighter, fighter-bomber, reconnaissance aircraft, trainer and night-fighter. Its main role was as a fighter, and in this role it excelled, dominating the European skies for more than a year after its introduction into service in August 1941. The FW 190 retained a certain superiority over Allied types throughout the war. Continual development resulted in new variants, eventually seeing a radical change in shape with a new engine fitted to the FW 190 D (Dora), and in the final months of the war, the Ta 152 (designated Ta to honor designer Kurt Tank). By the end of the war more than 20,000 had been produced, and the FW 190 had become one of the world's great warplanes. This page is a tribute to the aircraft and its pilots.
