Re: Me 410 top ace

Gentlemen,

Please verify these claims before accepting my word for it. I have interpolated the misspellings and jumped to the conclusion that the team of pilot Feldwebel Johann Trenke and his radio-operator Unteroffizier Josef Ottrin of 16/KG2, later 6/KG51, should share the responsibility for the following twelve intruder claims credited to one or the other. I found the claims on the asisbis.com site of Luftwaffe Aerial Victories.

In 16/KG2:
"Treicke" 11 Aug. "Stirling" 02/00716 2800m 14.25hrs
1943


In 6/KG51:
"Trenke" 22 Apr. "Fortess" 1384/05 Ost E 22.04hrs
1944
"Trenke" 22 Apr. "Halifax" 1384/05 Ost E 22.10hrs
1944
"Trenke" 22 Apr. "Halifax" 1385/05 Ost E 22.16hrs
1944
"Trenke" 27 Apr. "Unknown" 0356/05 Ost E 04.25hrs
1944
"Trenke" 22 May "Lancaster" 0489/05 Ost E 1200m 03.05hrs
1944
"Trenke" 22 May "Lancaster" 0317/05 Ost E 800m 03.14hrs
1944
"Trenke" 22 May "Lancaster" 0324ZZ/05 Ost E 800m 03.22hrs
1944
"Ottren" 13 June "unknown" 4381ZZ/Ost E 200m 01.25hrs
1944
"Ottren" 17 June "4-motor a/c" 2225/05 Ost E 4500m 02.00hrs
1944
"Trenke" 17 June "4-motor a/c" 1211/05 Ost E 02.15hrs
1944
"Frenke" 03 Jul. "unknown" 007/05 Ost S 500m 0014hrs
1944

They were in Me 410s.

Best regards,

Jim Geens
