IT WAS the nemesis of the famous RAF Spitfire during the Battle of Britain.A Messerschmitt Me109 has  made its way to East Yorkshire on the back of a lorry from the south coast transported by the Potter Group.

The Messerschmitt Bf 109 single-seat interceptor fighter was first flown in September 1935 and saw action in the Spanish Civil War with Jumo 210 engines. The Daimler-Benz DB 605 12-cylinder inverted V engine was introduced with the Bf 109G in 1942. The Bf 109G served on all fronts from 1942 to 1945. More than 33,000 Bf 109 were built between 1937 and 1945.
