Prior to the commencement of WWII and throughout the Battle of Britain the Bf109E was no doubt one of the worlds greatest single seat, single engine fighters. Compared to the British Hurricane and the Spitfire it was equal to the task and historians and aircraft enthusiasts will argue for many years, which was the best aircraft. Overall, possibly of the three the Spitfire just edges to the fore, but had Germany made the necessary improvements to the Bf109 as the British did to the Hurricane and Spitfire, then the outcome of 1940 may have been different. The Bf109E-4 was the variant that mostly saw service in the Battle of Britain. This particular aircraft was flown by German ace Hans Von Hahn who survived the war and credited with 34 victories achieved in over 300 missions.
