While looking on http://www.preservedaxisaircraft.com/Lu ... /fw190.htm , I noticed that there isn't a photo for a few of the 190's based/or owned by US owners much less any info. So my question is this does the wix community have any info that maybe common knowledge, but might be harder to find fora novice such as myself? Here's a list from the great website preservedaxisaircraft.

FW-190 A-8 werk no.732183

Fw 190A-8 werk no.732070

Fw 190F-8

Fw 190A-6 Werk no.550470 White 7 I./JG26 N126JG

Fw 190D-9 werk no.210096
JG 26

FW 190A-8 werk no.73056 REG.N91169
I/JG11 White 14
Project for airworthiness owned by Don Hansen, previously with Malcolm Laing. Built in 1944 at Marienburg. It is painted as the aircraft flown by Oberstleutnant Hans Dortenman. Might be completed during 2003. Incorporates many parts made by Flug Werk. did this one ever fly or get finished?

Fw 190A-3 werk no.5467 N6152P
Yellow 9 3./JG5
Fighter Factory, VI previously with Texas Air Museum, Texas, under restoration to fly.

Now i've done a few google searches and not a lot comes up and I've searched wix but I may have the filter to tight to get more info. Any ways any info will be more than helpful.

Timken stuff is with Collings. Malcolm's project was sold ( have to look at my records as I can't recall who to). Don's aircraft is basically all Flug Werk. All TAM aircraft projects were sold to Jerry.
A number of those listed are no more than parts, esp. the Doras
