Re: Heihkels KG26

David,

I hope that you haven't already bought the kit. The losses during the attack on October 16, 1939, were Ju88s as follows:

Stab I./KG30 Junkers Ju 88A-1. One engine damaged by AA fire and cockpit hood lost during attack on HMS Southampton in the Firth of Forth. Finally engaged by Blue Section of No.602 Squadron (S/L A. McKellar, F/Lt G. Pinkerton, and F/O P. A. Webb) and ditched in the sea off Crail 2.45 p.m. FF Hptmn Helmut Pohle (Gruppenkommandeur) rescued - badly injured face in landing. BS Gefr August Schleicher rescued badly wounded - later died, BF Uffz Kurt Naake killed, and BO Fw Werner Weise missing. Aircraft 4D+AK 100% write-off.

1./KG30 Junkers Ju 88A-1. Shot down by Green Section of No.603 Squadron (S/L A.D. Farquhar, F/Lt A.V.R. Johnstone, and F/O P.J. Ferguson) and crashed in sea 4 miles north of Port Seton following attack on HMS Southampton in the Firth of Forth 2.50 p.m. FF Oberlt Siegmund Storp (Staffelkapitän), BO Oberfw Hugo Köhnke, and BF Oberfw Hans-Georg Hielscher all captured slightly injured - rescued by trawler Dayspring, BS Obergefr Friedrich Krämer missing. Aircraft 4D+DH 100% loss.

1./KG30 Junkers Ju88A-1. Crash-landed at Westerland on return starboard engine badly damaged in attacks by F/O C. Robertson and P/O J.S. Morton of No.603 Squadron following attack on British Fleet in the Firth of Forth 2.50 p.m. FF Lt Horst von Riesen and rest of crew unhurt. Aircraft 45% damaged but repairable.
