Re: Transcript of interrogation of Wolfgang Schellmann

I shall take no credit for this, but 6-47 was a Bf 109 B, not Bf 109 C - the position of the oxygen filler and electrical socket on the starboard side of the aircraft under the cockpit reveals that. In fact, the Bf 109 C was probably never delivered to Spain, and the last Bf 109 B delivered to Legion Condor was 6-60.

6-61 to 6-86 were Bf 109 D-1s, and so was the case with the aircraft designated 6-95, 6-96 and 6-97.

And all this discussion has little to do with the Interrogation of Wolfgang Schellmann.

Re: Transcript of interrogation of Wolfgang Schellmann

Good morning Sidney,

you mean the subtype designations given here
https://books.google.de/books?id=dEn...llmann&f=false
are wrong ? (6-1 to 6-3 V; 6-4 to 6-45 B; 6-46 to 6-50 C; 6-51 to 6-86 D; 6-87 to 6-131 E)

I wonder if Schellmann was the top Bf109C pilot and if he ever mentioned that subtype.

Kind regards,

Michael

Thanks Sidney. I only have a low quality photo of the port side .....
And yes, we strayed off-topic. Apologies for that.

Re: Transcript of interrogation of Wolfgang Schellmann

Hello,

if 6-47 isn't a Bf109C, isn't it Schellmann's machine either ?

Good afternoon Michael,

What I am saying here is that based on the photographic evidence some correction to the above list would be in order.

I would also propose that a new thread is opened in the pre-WW2 section, so we can discuss it further there.

Regards,
Sinisa

Re: Transcript of interrogation of Wolfgang Schellmann

Good afternoon Sinisa,

Peter has opened the thread you propose.
Maybe we'll succeed in nailing down Schellmann's Bf109C score.
We'll keep at it.

Best greetings from Brandenburg,

Michael

Re: Transcript of interrogation of Wolfgang Schellmann

Good morning Sidney,

has Schellmann's Spain logbook survived ?

Best greetings from the continent,

Michael

Re: Transcript of interrogation of Wolfgang Schellmann

Yes, I have it, but regrettably no fuse codes were recorded
