This is a list of surviving Focke-Wulf Fw 190s. At least 23 Fw 190s exist in museums, collections and in storage worldwide, with 11 displayed in the United States. The National Air and Space Museum stores the only known surviving "long-wing" Ta 152 H, an H-0/R-11 version, at the Paul E. Garber Preservation, Restoration and Storage Facility in Suitland, Maryland.

Six surviving Fw 190s served with JG 5 during their wartime existence, and when these six Fw 190s are added to the twenty surviving examples of the Bf 109s that also served with JG 5 during the war, a total of twenty-seven surviving former JG 5 aircraft — including one surviving Bf 110F "destroyer" heavy fighter that served in JG 5's lone tenth Zerstörerstaffel squadron (10.(Z)/JG 5) — are still in existence in the 21st century, more than from any other former Luftwaffe or other Axis Forces national aviation unit of the World War II era.

France[edit]

Germany[edit]

Norway[edit]

  • 2219[citation needed] – Fw 190 A-2 on static display in unrestored condition at the Herdla Museum in Herdla, Hordaland.[6] This airframe is from IV./JG 5, recovered from underwater location, it was rebuilt for the Norwegian Air Force Museum. The aircraft was salvaged from the ocean off the island of Sotra, near Bergen, Norway. Its pilot had made an emergency landing in December 1943 and had scrambled to safety and was rescued soon after; his aircraft had sunk to the bottom of the sea. After its retrieval from 60 m deep water, the Fw 190, "Yellow 16," from IV/JG 5 was only missing its canopy and the fabric-covered wing and tail surfaces.[7][not in citation given]

Serbia[edit]

South Africa[edit]

United Kingdom[edit]

  • 733685 – Fw 190 A-8 on static display at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford in Cosford, Shropshire. This airframe had originally been part of a Mistel S-3B composite aircraft along with a Junkers Ju-88 bomber. Previously on display at the Imperial War Museum since 1986, it was moved to its current location in October 2013, where it went on display after a short period of restoration.[15][16]

United States[edit]

  • 5476 – Fw 190 A-2 under restoration to airworthy by Wade S. Haynes in Anson, Texas.[17] This airframe is from JG 5 and is thought to be one of the oldest Fw 190s still in existence.[citation needed]
  • 151227 – Fw 190 A-5 airworthy at the Flying Heritage Collection in Everett, Washington. This airframe was being flown by Paul Rätz of JG 54 when it crash landed in a forest in Voibakala near Saint Petersburg on 9 July 1943 due to sabotage of the oil lines. It was discovered in the same location in 1988 or 1989 and was recovered in 1990 or 1991. Its first post restoration flight was on 1 or 2 December 2010.[18][19] It is currently the only airworthy Fw 190 with an original BMW 801 engine.[20][21][22][23][24]
  • 173889 – Fw 190 A-8 under restoration with Mark Timken. This airframe was from 7./JG 1.[citation needed]
  • 210096 – Fw 190 D-9 owned by the Collings Foundation in Stow, Massachusetts.[25][26]
  • 350177 – Fw 190 A-8 airworthy at the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, Virginia.[27][28] This airframe is from 12./JG 5, and was previously located at the Texas Air Museum in Rio Hondo, Texas.[citation needed]
  • 836017 – Fw 190 D-13 on static display at the Flying Heritage Collection in Everett, Washington. This airframe is from 1./JG 26[citation needed] as flown by Major Franz Götz. After capture it was donated to the Georgia Technical University, and then fell into disrepair. Later restored in Germany by William Flugzeuge[citation needed] and returned to the Champlin Fighter Museum in Mesa, Arizona. It was later loaned to the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington when the Champlin museum closed its doors, and is now on display in Everett, Washington as a part of Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection. The aircraft has been restored close to flyable condition, but it will not be flown because it is the only surviving D-13.[34][35][36]
  • 931862 or 93182[citation needed] – Fw 190 F-8 under restoration to airworthy with the Collings Foundation in Stow, Massachusetts.[37][38][39][26] It is being restored by American Aero Services.[40] This airframe is from 9./JG 5, the "White 1" as flown by Unteroffizier Heinz Orlowski, who examined his former aircraft personally in 2005, during its restoration. Also shot down by P-51s over Norway in the "Black Friday" engagement. Originally under restoration in Kissimmee, Florida, USA by The White 1 Foundation, it was transferred to The Collings Foundation in 2012, and is still expected to be returned to airworthy status.[citation needed]

Modern reproductions[edit]

Flug + Werk reproductions[edit]

Starting in 1997 a small German company, Flug + Werk GmbH,[45] began work on new Fw 190 A-8s; a run of 20 kits were produced. These planes are new reproduction builds from the ground up, using many original dies, plans, and other information from the war. The construction was sub-contracted to Aerostar SA of Bacău, Romania; both companies have been involved in a number of warbird replica projects.

Werk numbers continued from where the German war machine left off, with the new Fw 190 A-8s being labeled "Fw 190 A-8/N" (N for Nachbau: "replica"). Some of these new Fw 190s are known to be fitted with the original tail wheel units from the Second World War; a small cache of tail gear having been discovered. In November 2005, the first flights were completed.

Ironically, since the BMW 801 engines are no longer available, a Chinese licensed Soviet-designed engine, the Shvetsov ASh-82FN 14-cylinder twin-row radial engine of similar configuration and slightly smaller displacement (41.2 litres versus 41.8) to the original BMW powerplants, which powered some of the Fw 190s opposition: the La-5 and La-7, powers the new Fw 190 A-8/N.

As part of the run of 20 examples, FlugWerk also produced a limited number of "long nose" Fw 190D examples.
