The Focke Wulf Fw 190 and it's many variations were widely used during World War II. This single-seat German made fighter was designed by the German Ministry of Aviation.

Today's photograph shows the Air and Space Museum's restored F8 model, which entered service in 1941 and earned the nickname of the "Butcher Bird".

Like many museums, the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center is chocked full of interesting things to see and learn about and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there. It's a great place to take the family or simply hang out on your own.
