Do 17 shot down in south of France

Hi!

i'm looking for informations about a Dornier 17 shot down by french air force the june 19th 1940. This plane would have landed around Tournon (Ardèche, France).
I presume this plane was a part of the KG 55 but i don't find the right information.

Thank you for your help.

As far as I know it was a He-111 Stab./KG 53 around 11:10 but I don't have détails on the crew

KG 55 did not have Dornier Do 17 aircraft on strength in WW2.

Thank you Sirs.

The french pilot is lieutenant Jean Tariel ( GC III/1). His plane was a MS 406. It's funny to read in the french reports that the Do 17 tried to shot down first the french airplane ...

I suppose the Do 17 did a solo recon mission.

Re: Do 17 shot down in south of France

Xerumbe,

According to the EoE LW Loss DB compiled by Peter Cornwell:

"19 June 1940: Stabsstaffel KG53 Heinkel He111H. Reportedly forced-landed north of Tourney, France, damaged in attack by Lt Tariel of GC III/1 during reconnaissance sortie over Dompierre 11.10 a.m. No crew casualties. Aircraft 40% damaged but repairable."

Is your question prompted by photos of the LW a/c after it force-landed? Does anyone know of any photos of this aircraft after it came down?

I don't have any photo. I have read the combat report of the GC III/1. You talk about a He111 but the reports name the plane as a Do 17. I'm going to investigate more ...
