- Calculated at Checkout
The Messerschmitt Bf-110 was designed as a "heavy fighter" intended to escort bombers on long-range missions that were beyond reach of escorting fighters. The Bf-110 was however incapable of defending itself against most contemporary fighters in WWII so the aircraft was adapted for use in many roles including fighter bomb, reconnaissance, light transport and finally as a night fighter in defense of the Reich during the later stages of WWII. The Bf-110 was used throughout the war but served a unique role in one of the most unusual stories from WWII.
On May 10, 1941 Deputy Fuhrer of the German Reich, Rudolf Hess piloted a BF-110 for a clandestine flight to England with the apparent intention of negotiating a separate peace treaty with England. Hess parachuted from his Messerschmitt Bf-110 and landed in the English countryside while the airplane flew on to crash in Scotland. Fragments of the airplane were recovered, and markings were determined after a close inspection of photographs of the crash site. Rudolf Hess never had a chance to negotiate since any knowledge of the flight was denied by Adolf Hitler and Deputy Fuhrer Hess was condemned by the German government as having gone mad. Hess served the duration of WWII in an English POW camp and after the war stood trial at the Nuremberg War Crimes trials. Having been convicted of war crimes, Hess spent the rest of his life in Spandau Prison.
