Interesting "not-quite-a-Hakenkreuz" on the tail.

I noticed that too. I'm guessing somewhere in Germany. The spitfire in the background used to belong to Rudy Frasca. It spent somet time on display at the EAA museum in Oshkosh. A mark18 I believe. That video really shows off the sound of the Daimler Benz engine. Another great video.

Great engine sound. Judging by the cowl bulge a G or K subtype. Of about 35k built there can't be many more than this one non-Spanish clone flyable.
The almost-swastika must be as close as you can legally get in Germany. Wonder that the neo nazis don't adapt it as a symbol like they did the Confederate battle flag. Though I suppose the Stars-and-bars does convey the we-are-murderous-racists message adequately.

Very interesting, both the sound AND the video. Thanks for sharing it!

Likely taken at home base in Germany, on the island of Usedom. It is, as noted in the title, a G-14 model, registered as D-FMGV. See the following for info, they have a few warbirds.
