Then, I would bet on 464 606...BTW also the style of the white spiral on the spinner is typical of Bf 109G-14s of that batch...(I have seen only now the two other frontal shots).

Pity that the nose oil filler hatch can't be seen clearly, because I would bet this aircraft belongs to those G-14s fitted with the bigger oil nose tank (from "horseshoe" shape to annular one) and thus had the "higher" placed one, like on G-10s and K-4s.


Jörg and Ferdinando,

All my thanks for correcting and narrowing down the W.Nr. range. It is much appreciated. You are duly credited in the stream, as Peter, from LEMB who tracked the original site harboring this set of three pictures (http://www.stalag18a.org.uk/)

Srecko, looking forward for your profile.
Oberst, your info is very interesting. May I ask for your source?

Cheers
Marc

Hallo Oberst,

Excellent picture! Is the place and date known?

This looks much more like a late Bf 109G-6 from MTT Regensburg, IMHO.

BTW, speaking of the Erla G-14 we have discussed so far, looking more closely at it, I'm more and more convinced its W.Nr. is 464 609...

Ferdinando,

I played along with what my Mac can give as picture edition; the result is clearer then I would have expected: xx4 609 is clearly to be seen. The second digit might be a 6 and the first is lost forever... Thus W.Nr. (4)64 609 is the best match.


Thanks for checking it over;-))

Well.... finding or the image owner and high resolution scan would be even greater. Who is owner?

Why not drop the webmaster of the link provide by Marc in post #161 Srecko?

Incidentally, rather than personally take credit for providing this link, as can be seen in the link provided by Christian in post #148, it was LEMB member Richard502 who originally posted a direct link back in April'10...

Peter- this topic become huge and simply I can not trace all post here. At least I am not responsible for any content or material post here so I see no problem if I ask for optional info.

Thank you for attention anyway :)

I guess that the best way should be to contact Ian Brown, curator of the fantastic site http://www.stalag18a.org.uk/ and ask him to get in touch with "...Kathryn Shepherd, daughter of Pte Ken Bee..." who supplied those G-14 photographs we are all interested at...

Don't know if this is the fastest route, but is undoubtedly the more correct one.
