Messerschmitt Bf 110 – Warbird Wednesday Episode #132

Messerschmitt Bf 110

Welcome to Warbird Wednesday! Today we’re visiting another night fighter, the Messerschmitt Bf 110, developed in Nazi Germany during WWII. Introduced in 1937, this fighter quickly became popular because it was heavier, had quicker speeds reaching up to 295 mph and could carry a large amount of weaponry. Later in WWII, it was developed into a radar-equipped night fighter, becoming the main night-fighting aircraft of Luftwaffe. After 6,170 models were built, the Bf 110 was retired in 1945.
