Ghostbombers updates
 
I've just posted some new material to my website:

http://www.ghostbombers.com/updates.html

A selection of messages about the transfer of IV./KG 27 to a new airfield; the shooting down a a Ju 188 from 11./KG 2; and a detailed strength return for IV./KG 1 showing a diverse collection of aircraft types.

An extensive addition to the NSG 9 pages about the arrival of Ju 87s with 6Q+N_ codes in February/March 1944.

An addition to the NSG 9 pages about the 1. Staffel's deployment to the battle front in March 1944.

Re: Ghostbombers updates
 
New things added to ghostbombers.com tonight (local time) include:
  • An addition to the article on I./JG 2 in Italy describing No. 253's role in the 52nd FG's clash with I./JG 2 on 19 March 1944.
  • a redesigned "complete works" page with several new illustrations.
  • a redesigned home page (tested with Safari and Firefox but it probably won't work properly for IE5 users).
  • correction of a circa 15-year-old error in the appendices to the Operation Dragoon article.
Two more additions are dealt with in other threads.

New things added to ghostbombers.com tonight (local time) include:
  • An update to The Luftwaffe and Saint-Exupéry article, incorporating research done in the last few weeks (see the thread on that topic).
  • A small addition to the article on The Bf 109 H in service with 5.(F)/123 reflecting debate on TOCH about the type of engine it had.
  • Fixed the navigation of Kommando Sommer: the road to Italy so that you can now get to the last page.

I've just posted some new material to my website:

http://www.ghostbombers.com/updates.html

Aside from the Bf 109 H material (see separate thread) there are:
  • NSG 9 (Chapter 7): information about the rescue of Fw. Karl Razinski from his crashed Ju 87 (complimenting the story already there of his pilot's escape from the wreckage).
  • II./NJG 6 in Italy: a new report about a Bf 110 shot down on 2/3 June 1944, including its tactical code.
  • Using Ultra: minor updates.

Superb work, Nick, as usual. Thanks for the hard work. those who have not worked with ULTRA or Intelligence files have no idea how tedious it is!

There are now several additions to the article on I./JG 2 in Italy. These include two "new" missions and a Bf 109 loss and are drawn from a 4. Staffel pilot's Flugbuch. This information is thanks to Erik Mombeek whose work on JG 2 is considerably more ambitious than mine.

Sorry Nick, but I don't see any changes that you have made to the engine carried by the 109H. As I mentioned in an earlier thread, the designation of the engine as a DB 605GS was a perfectly valid one.

Re: Ghostbombers updates (April 2009)
 
I've just posted the first updates to my site for a couple of months:
  • A new article: II./SG 10 in Yugoslavia, November 1944
  • A new graphic added to page 4 of the Using Ultra article
  • Corrections to an appendix of The Stuka on the Scrapheap article
The II./SG 10 article relates to an earlier thread on TOCH by the way.

Your guess is as good as mine.

The Personalverlustmeldung that I used as a source for the article says that Oblt. Steffen was «Bordfu.» who failed to return from a mission to the Linnich area on 24.2.45 and that his fate was unknown. The Gen.Qu. 6. Abt. loss return for that date also says he is a «Bf.» and the he is missing.

What is your source for his being posted missing on 1 November 1944?
