You are bidding on a SUPERB and 100% original autographed photo, signed by aircraft designer, Wilhelm Emil (Willy) Messerschmitt!
Wilhelm Emil “Willy” Messerschmitt (26 June 1898 – 15 September 1978) was a German aircraft designer and manufacturer. In 1934, in collaboration with Walter Rethel, he designed the Messerschmitt Bf 109, which became the most important fighter aircraft in the Luftwaffe as Germany rearmed prior to World War II. It remains the second most-produced warplane in history, with some 34,000 built, behind the Soviet Ilyushin Il-2. Another Messerschmitt aircraft, first called “Bf 109R”, purpose-built for record setting, but later re-designated Messerschmitt Me 209, broke the absolute world airspeed record and held the world speed record for propeller-driven aircraft until 1969. Messerschmitt’s firm also produced the first jet-powered fighter to enter service — the Messerschmitt Me 262.
Made of heavy paper (Agfa Brovira), this black and white photo is in EXCELLENT condition! Probably dating from the late 1940’s or 1950’s, it features the image of Willy Messerschmitt, and is signed at the bottom. Some marks and wear due to the age , but nothing that detracts. 100% original, it would look EXCELLENT framed! A PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
