The Messerschmitt BF109 - Germany
The Messerschmitt BF109 was without doubt one of the greatest single seat fighters in aviator history.
It was first used in 1936 in the Spanish Civil War. This had provided invaluable testing for Germany and they then built around 33,000 Messerschmitt BF109 fighters during 1936 - 1945.
The fighters served in many battles including the Battle of Britain and the Invasion of Poland.
