Re: Flugplatz Ossinowka

Surely May 1943 not 1942?

Витебск = Vitebsk (and no, I can't read Cyrillic).

Re: Flugplatz Ossinowka

Thanks for the info. Off course it was first half of 1943. It helps to find out from where the claims of I./JG26 wher made. However some are not easy to determine. For instance:
31.05.43 Uffz. Erich Ahrens 3./JG 26 Il-2  16 362: at 500 m. 13.10 Film C. 2032/II Anerk: Nr. 132
31.05.43 Uffz. Heinz Münch 3./JG 26 Il-2  16 334: at 3-500 m. 13.12 Film C. 2032/II Anerk: Nr. 133
31.05.43 Fw. Josef Zirngibl 3./JG 26 P-2  26 854: at 4-5.000 m. 16.05 Film C. 2032/II Anerk: Nr. 134
Where they made from further north or furher south. Or a position is in error?
