Aerial view

Request

Does anybody know a USAAF aerial view of Sterzing-Vipiteno, close to the Brenner pass, South Tyrol, Italy.

The area was a dangerous FLAK center and caused many US-crashes in the sourroundings.
One FLAK battery was knocked out on 8th April 1945.

The history club of Sterzing would like to present an aireal view taken by the US Air Force.

Thx a lot for cooperation.

Re: Aerial view

Hi Ginamod, on ncap the closest photo available online for you location is of the mountain area Obernberg am Brenner : https://ncap.org.uk/search?bbox=11.3...01272583054584

Instead there are no less than 55 recce missions of this area available : https://ncap.org.uk/browse/finding-a...01272583054584

You will need a subscription to access the finding aids, if you know the locations of the flak batteries you will have no problem in finding several photos of these, which will have to be ordered based on the finding aids.

Hi ginamod


You can also order records from AFHRA.
By a quick search on Vipiteno give you records with mission reports and probably photos of the target area.
