Re: Luftwaffe losses over Germany / November 1944

I was Seldom Red Four at 20,000 feet when we observed a group of B-24s being attacked by e/a. On our first pass, I came directly behind a Fw190 who was firing on a B-24, which blew up in flames. My first burst showed two flashes on the left wing, and I followed him until I got in a long burst, with strikes observed all over the wings and fuselage, just behind the cockpit, and a column of smoke coming from the engine. The plane went into a lazy like roll and then straight down.

Im looking into B-24 losses that day as well to reconstruct the battle somewhat.


Try using this as a start .. never mind. upload doesn't work with Docx andmy pdf file slightly too big. email me @ marshall_william at Hotmail. put 26 November in subject block. The 355th and 361st did the most damage east and south of Hannover
