On 23 June 1942, the RAF received an unexpected 'gift' from the Luftwaffe, when this Focke-Wulf 190A-3 fell into its hands. Following combat with Spitfires over the Channel, Oberleutnant Arnim Faber, the adjutant of III./JG 2, mistakenly landed this aircraft at Pembrey in South Wales. This 190 was soon sent to the RAE at Farnborough where it was examinated, evaluated and tested.
