Re: First victory with a FW 190

Found this: "On August 14 [1941], the Staffelkapitän of 6./JG 26 Oblt. Schneider and Lt. Schenk shot down two Spitfires in a dogfight with the Polish 306 Sqn, achieving the first victories on the FW 190. Paradoxically, it was Heinz Schenk himself who became the first frontline loss in a Focke Wulf. After a fight with Spitfires on August 29, Schenk came within range of German flak near Dunkirk, which immediately opened fire on him. The hit FW 190 (W. Nr. 008) crashed on a beach south of town, killing the pilot."

Re: First victory with a FW 190

Good evening Bakerman.

And Thank you very much.

Your answer comfort me on what I thought about.

Lt Schenk was the wingman of Oblt Schneider the Co. of 6./JG 26

The first claim at 6.30PM and the second at 6.37 PM, the 2 Spitfire belonged to 306 Sqn.

Eventually S/L J. Zaremba and P/O W. Choms.

Thank you again
