View Full Version : French Ju88
On possibly 1.febr.1945 the german Flak shot-down a Ju88a-1 over Gironde fortress, it was manned by frenchs, the Wn was given as 897, STKZ 888302 FM 12940, possibly a A-4 with 8888302...

I have not cracked this one for shure (but topic has been dicussed before, here or on LEMB). The info given suggest this numbers come from a part plate (88.303 was Port Flap on A-4), maybe 8-88.302 was older A-1 component, here re-used in rebuilt plane (as FM ´12.9.40´ suggest very old part).
The ´W.Nr. 897´ could be the correct number to trace but likely/could be just last three (i.e. only part of the number to look for; possibly G-1 714897 ?)
G-1 Not , the plane come from stock left behind in aug. 44 in the Toulouse , Bourges area, or a G-1 of the ZG1...
You cracked a lot if really 12.09.40 a part only..
A 8832 was built by the frenchs but in late 45, but on 23.febr.45 they lost the 883781 not far from Bordeaux , nd maybe our bird, on 1.febr. 45 the 1259/2002 was shot-down at Saint-vaize 20+ Km NE Royan

Yes, "Ju 88 No.3" D-1 1259/2002 seems most likely. Is location near enough?
Normally not near enought , the germans seem to hv inspect the plane the pocket don't reach that area, but location is maybe wrong...
I will try to hv some details from the frenchs
