Mike Nixon restores a second BMW 801 for a World War II Fw 190

My husband Al and I had a special opportunity last week to visit with Mike Nixon at Vintage Radials and watch the running of a very rare German aircraft engine from a World War II fighter. This very engine powered a Focke-Wulf 190 that actually downed many of our fighters and bombers in combat during the war, yet those who love history want to preserve this impressive adversary and bring her back to life in flying condition. There is no desire to rewrite the history.
