German aircraft at Eelde airfield

Hello,

In the Summer of 1945 some derelict German aircraft remained at the Eelde airfiled (in the northern part of Holland). Some details have recently emerged to my, identifying two of the aircraft.

FW.190 W/Nr 210037
FW.189 coded 'GH+GA'

If anybody could add some details on this aircraft, I would very much appreciate this.

Kind regrads,
Hendrik

Hi.

The FW 190 was obviously a D-9 subtype.

Regards,
Andreas

Re: German aircraft at Eelde airfield

Hello Henrik, this is very interesting. Until now WNr. 210037, indeed a D-9, was never identified before. It could be a III./JG 54 a/c as most D-9's in that Werknummer block went to that unit. RAF CEA Report No. 269 of 12.5.1945 lists two Fw 189 and one Fw 190 found at Eelde. Unfortunately it does not list werknummers or kennzeichen. Can you let us know where you found the WNr. of this Fw 190? Cheers,
John.

Re: German aircraft at Eelde airfield

Hello Hendrik,
Interesting data you have! In "sporen aan de hemel"deel 3 by Ab.A.Jansen, page 352 there is a picture of a Fw189 at Eelden. One of the two John mentioned and so a fifty percent chance of beeing GH+GA. Like john I would like to ask where you got this information from.

Groeten,
Dennis

Re: German aircraft at Eelde airfield

FW 190D-9 W.Nr. 210037 with Stammkennzeichen TS+DK came from a series of such aircraft produced by Focke-Wulf Sorau (ncc) from September 1944. Most other FW 190D-9s around this W.Nr. went to either II. or III./J.G.54.

Regards

Bjorn

Re: German aircraft at Eelde airfield

The info comes from photographs that I saw last week. There is no doubt on the W/Nr of the FW.190. The tail of this aircraft is shown in great detail on a picture that shows a Canadian soldier posing at the tail. A souvenir hunter obviously tried to cut the swastika marking from the tail but has failed in his attempt. The FW.189 that can be seen on another picture is without its tailbooms. The letter G can be seen onder the starboard wingtip. A seperate picture shows a tailboom marked (most probably) GH+GA. The first letter is very hard to read but could be a G.

Kind regards,
Hendrik
