Yes, it was a nice plane.  Miss Ashley II came apart in the air during the `99 air races at Reno.  :'(  Pilot was the only fatality.  It was a new construction, the fuselage was built from P-51H plans, the wings and horizontal were from a Lear Jet and the Engine was a Rolls Royce Griffon, larger and more powerfull than the Merlin engine and using conter rotating props.

According to Rag Wings and Heavy Iron, the Bf108 Taifun is a really fun airplane. The author (Martin Caidin) was involved in the CAF and their
use of the 108 as an airshow fighter.

The company wasn't well known for airplanes, but they were well known.
