Re: Axis airplanes captured by Allied troops on Klagenfurt airfield, Austria, 1945

Hello,

A Henschel Hs-126 is mentioned on the documents above.
I think it is this:

[img]http://lumabe.free.fr/Divers/Hs126_2.jpg[/img]

[img]http://lumabe.free.fr/Divers/Hs126_3.jpg[/img]

The document says also that this Hs-126 was fitted with bomb rack and was used against "Yugo-Slaves".

It's very difficult to see the call sign of this plane and also the serial number. Please , somebody have other pictures about this plane ?

Thank you very much,

Best regards,

Lumabe.

From memory, the Hs 126 was either yellow E or yellow F. The photo is in the Imperial War Museum collection (as is the one with all the Ar 96s) and has been published many times.

Excellent material, Nick. Thank you!
Pitty that the serial and construction numbers of the "unimportant" trainers were not recorded.

Has anyone any clue of what airplane types "Vorcelli 8105", "Bu 191C" and "Viet 200" actually might be?

I assume "B.51" is actually Beneš-Mráz Be-51, known to be captured and used by the Luftwaffe (but not by the Royal Hungarian Air Force).

Have you, or someone else, seen the complete series of photos taken at Klagenfurt, currently preserved at IWM, as you noted? If yes, are there any frames that are unpublished (where some of the unregistered codes might be seen)?

"Vorcelli" could perhaps be an italian Avia Fl.3, built in the town of Vercelli.
Italian serial (MM) were in the 56xxx range.

I think, that the Bu 191 C is just a typo for the Buecker 181 C airplane.

Yes, the coincidence is striking.

In this case, I believe they've found a Croatian machine (I don't have my references handy).

I was also tempted to believe it, but the 'Bu 181' is already listed separately.

Finally, could the 'Viet 200' actually be a Saiman 200? Also flown by the Croat air force...

P.S. Dirk, a personal message to you is on its way...

I saw another photo of this aircraft some years ago and it showed the emblem of the 2./NAGr 12 on the port side of the nose
