Walter Schuck attends at the SOS in Lousville, KY

Maybe it interests you, that the Messerschmitt Ace Walter Schuck (Knights Cros, Oak Leaves holder, 206 aerial victories) will be at the Show of Shows in Louisville/KY from February 23rd - 25th to meet American WW 2 veterans - among them his defeater and friend Lt. Col. (ret.) Joseph (Joe) Peterburs, the Mustang pilot who shot his Me 262 down on April 10th 1945.

On that occasion Walter Schuck will talk about his former experiences with the Me 109 and the Me 262, present his new Photo-CD with over 1.000 pictures from the JG 5 "Eismeerjäger" and give autographs on books and posters, see for instance the attached Me 262 image with the new Balkenkreuz frame, designed by Claes Sundin.

All the best,
Horst Kube

Dear members,

because I am involved in the sellings of the CD and the posters, I can only answer your questions offboard. When you are interested in more details, please send me a private message.

All the best,
Horst Kube

Re: Walter Schuck attends at the SOS in Lousville, KY

I have a copy of the CD, and I can recommend it. The CD contains a large number of photos, collected from various JG 5 pilots, including Walter Schuck. The CD serves as a good supplement to Yuriy Rybin’s and my forthcoming biography on Walter Schuck, Messerschmitt Ace Walter Schuck: From Me 109 to Me 262.

After many years of work, we are proud to announce that the manuscript is completed and only awaits publishing.

Our book Messerschmitt Ace Walter Schuck: From Me 109 to Me 262 is richly illustrated by over 300 photographs. A few of those also appear on the CD, but most illustrations in the book are unique. The photo material is not only from Walter Schuck’s private albums and unpublished Russian photos of pilots we have identified fought against Schuck in specific air combats, but also from the Norwegian researcher Rune Rautio’s excellent photo archive, as well as Norwegian archives of captured Luftwaffe photos, photos from recent years of the wrecks of Soviet aircraft which we have identified were shot down by Schuck, etc.

Plus a large number of never before published photographs of Me 262 unit I./JG 7 from a very special source!

Moreover, the book will contain about 50 absolutely rare large-size colour profiles by Claes Sundin, based on an absolutely unique photo documentation only at Claes Sundin's disposal.

The website on the Walter Schuck book has recently been updated with some details on the book, and expect the website to be regularly updated with such material in the nearest future:

O Menu, oh yes - the Karaya song!

I have the original record, but I borrowed it to a very reliable colleague who will have it recorded so that it will be possible to listen to the Karaya song while viewing the Graf & Grislawski rudder exhibition at Technikmuseum Speyer. Will take care of it soon. Thanks for reminding me!
