Alfons Klein

Hello Håkan

According to Jagdgeschwader 52 by John Weal, Oberleutnant Alfons Klein was a veteran of the Legion Condor with one victory when appointed Staffelkapitän of 3./JG 433 in November 1938. He was killed on 18 February 1939, when the Ju 53/3m tri-motor transport he was a passenger in crashed due to severe icing in a snowstorm over the Eger hills while en route from Ingolstadt to Berlin. Purportedly, he was going to attend the Berlin Motor Show. The Ritterkreuzträger that served with JG 52 and JG 11 was a different person.

Horrido!
