Title: What's wrong with this Fw 190?
Post by: Editor on August 27, 2009, 01:32:30 PM
Here's the Fw190 A from Flying Legends 2009. Is it just me, or is the pitot tube bent on this one?

I was going to say that it didn't have a spitfire behind it ;D  could it have something to do with how the pic was taking ???

I wouldn't think so. The rest of the a/c is "straight" on the picture!

I got another, quite recent pic of this particular aircraft from a different angle: The pitot tube is just as bent there. I guess this is to minimize errors at high angles of attack, e.g. shortly before flaring.

I just saw this photo, It's just the angle I think.
