Messerschmitt Bf110F-2 Trop  -  c/n 5052  -  Modex LN+NR  -  Luftwaffe 13./(Z) JG 5  -  Deutsches Technikmuseum Berlin, Germany  -  26 March 2010

BF110F-2 Werknummer 5052 served as LN+NR with 13./Zerstörergruppe JG 5 in Finland during 1943. On January 11, it was damaged by Flak flying a mission against railway lines between Murmansk and Leningrad. Pilot Helmut Ziegenhagen successfully executed a forced landing on a frozen lake, with all crew picked up by friendly forces the next day.

The comparably well-preserved wreck was salvaged in 1991 and shipped to the UK. In 1997, it was acquired by Deutsches Technikmuseum together with another wreck marked M8+ZE, which provided parts to the restoration.
