Yes, it is a flying FW 190 A8 and it is stationed in Sweden. Unfortnuatly it isn't the BMW 801 engine, but a russian ASH82 one.

Short story, from what I read in the comments: Many Flugwerke "parts" were required to re-build this aircraft. Which was crash landed on a farm in Southern Sweden by Ludwig Nitzsch of 1./J.G. 54., at the end of WWII. Ludwig returned to the farm on his release from the authorities and married the farmer's daughter. He lived in Sweden until his death 1998?

It may not be the real thing, but personally I think the Flug Werke 190 is a worthy stand-in rather than just a replica.
Can't believe it was nine years ago that we saw one at Legends:

9:15 covers basics of carrier landings.  Meatball, lineup, angle of attack.

Not sure if I or anyone else has posted this, but there are some gems in this short film of the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations, an Air Pageant staged at White Waltham Airfield in 1977.

Of particular note is the VC10 in some serious ground effect at around the 2:45 mark! 😮

The newly restored Mk XVI TB885 was used on the Saturday (Dutch Squadron painted 😏) and what you see is the engine going kaput unfortunately! Also worryingly edited to show the ground explosions, nothing crashed don't worry.

He landed safely and used a different Spitfire on the Sunday (TA805 Mk IX Spirit of Kent to be precise) :salute:

Yeah, they were just the orchestrated ground explosions, nothing to see here...

It does have a poorly Merlin though.
