Re: Ghostbombers updates

Hello Nick,

Re-reading your magnificent article about NJ-Staffel Finland/Norwegen alias 4./NJG 3, I suddenly realized that I had somewhere a transfer date of their He219: Hptm. Hüschgens was 29 June 1944 in Venlo to get the Rostock produced He219A-0 Wnr. 210901 (source reference will follow soon).

What puzzles me, is that the Flugzeugbestand- und Bewegungsmeldungen show this He219 not earlier than August 1944. This leaves room for speculation that this bird received some modifications in July 1944 before it became on strength of the NJ-Staffel.

All the best, Marcel
airfield Venlo in WW-2, I./NJG 1, He219-project
