If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln


This is a day brought to you by Focke-Wulf and the Ta-152 which exotically we see here in RAF markings. For reasons unclear (edit: it was because of a change in policy in 1944 to name planes after their designers) it was named after its designer, Kurt Tank, rather than its builder.

Focke-Wulf wound up as part of Airbus. Power was (in the form of an inverted V12) by Daimler-Benz as they then were. They returned to the day job after the war but retained an aerospace interest which also wound up in Airbus..
