Re: He 111 P - identity

Sorry Uwe,

Not real airframe W.Nr plate, in my opinion - Part plate 8.111.6001-09 (motor cowl, cowl-frame, engine bearer) says that that it can have easily travelled to another a/c or not even fitted to that He 111 P at all.

Another plate had W.Nr. "1627" also but with B.Nr. 583 (8-111.538 - Wing part) BAL 06.39 - and was on TOCH some years back.

I have studied these B-Plates and have several theories, but all are "line-plates" and as everybody should know, only tail end of plane held true W.Nr.
As contradictory as it may seem W.Nr. (part) is not same as W.Nr. (airframe).
