A Fw 200/KG 40 loss in 1944

Hello,


On January 27. 1944 a Fw 200 from 9./KG 40 was shot down by a Beaufighter from 418.Sqdrn.
It was on a transferflight to Bordeaux and crashed at Vorly (VDK)
The pilot, Ofw. Willy Anton Schmidt and his crew were killed in the incident.


Maybe this is a long shot, but is the Wnr. and code known on this plane?


Thank you,


Christian
