For a rare plane, call on the best mechanic

When your Honda needs a tune-up, what do you do? There are a million Hondas out there and, therefore, thousands of mechanics who can handle the job. When your rare Daimler-Benz DB.601Aa engine needs a check-up, things become a bit more complicated. I think it’s safe to say a Honda (or Mercedes) mechanic won’t do.

Mike Nixon not only knows this engine, he built it. Mike is the owner of Vintage V-12s. He brings exotic piston engines back to life and created some of the fastest race engines in the world. Nixon is in town to make sure the powerplant in the FHC’s Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-3 is tuned and ready for this year’s flying season.
