Re: High Scoring 109

I would offer two of Marseille's 109Fs. His first known one was #8693 which had at least 52 marks. We do not know if all these claims were made using this machine.

His last known F, #8673, we now know he apparently ferried back to Africa after his leave and used until he received a G-2. We think he scored at least 57 if he flew it on all missions where he made claims.

Indeed, such men flew many machines and it might be doubtful if any airframe was used for all missions where claims were made. The only real way to know is to have the pilot's FB.
