With the Bf 109 Messerschmitt had risen to become the leading German fighter aircraft manufacturers since 1935. Already in 1936 was followed by the twin-engined Bf 110 , which was introduced as a long -range fighter , destroyer , fighter-bomber , night fighter and reconnaissance aircraft in large numbers in the Air Force . As more powerful successors developed the Messerschmitt Me 210 , the first flight in 1939 star -tete . But this aircraft showed serious weaknesses constructive , and because of the critical flight characteristics that accidents accumulated in the Me- 210 Therefore, the Air Force refused to accept further aircraft, the hasty tarnished mass production was abruptly stopped after only a few copies. As a result of this disaster had Professor Willy Messerschmitt , the management of the Messerschmitt AG to give up, but remained until the end of the war chief designer of the company. Feverishly worked on design changes . The fuselage of the Me 210 was lengthened and thickened , and thus most of the problems could be eliminated . In this new version, and with more powerful engines , this plane was from 1943 to 1944 is now built under the designation Me 410 again in series and proved to be in the Air Force . For the first time the series development of the Bf 110 is well documented on the Me 210 to the Me 410 with many illustrations in detail in this book. It becomes clear as the Me 210 with severe defects went into production under the pressure of the war without sufficient testing and could be improved constructively only with considerable effort . This documentary about an equally interesting as instructive chapter of the German aircraft industry, a gap in the history of aviation is closed.
