Thanks nonetheless, Franck!

It would be great to hear news and advices from Fernando too;-))

Maybe another occasion: again a new Bf 109 K-4 pic!

Hi all, and nice finds Marc!

This JG 4-aircraft in Sulechow (then Züllichau) is particularly interesting to me - is there any data available on this loss?

Regards,
Christian

Nice 9o9!
Thanks! Where?...
And what about the OTHER emblem which is situated on the other side of this cowling? You have one, too?

Regards, Franck.

Hallo Christian,

Here is a scan of the published information I have, in Jet & Prop 3/09... There is an e-mail address;-)). Hopefully something more will be known by now.

Cheers
Marc

where? south of Germany ;)

here the emblem on the right side

"gräuslicher Socken" > "horrible sock"

actual origin / meaning is unknown

Thanks 9-o-9!

OK, but what is that exactly?
A Bird? A "Strauss"? "Den Kopf in den Sand stecken"? And a bad word between Socken and stecken?
Strauss being pilot's name? (Got one Strauss and one Vogel in JG 4 but none of them linked with a Bf 109 K-4 ...)

Well well well; this is a true speculation I'm afraid :D.

Regards.

"gräuslich" (a very unusual word in the German language)

The bird looks like the Road Runner...
