Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Thanks Snautzer !

For the sake of completeness, here two more shots which were on sale too before being withdrawn:

We are looking at Bf 109 G-14 W.Nr. 463 141 "Schwarze 17", 2./NAGr 14, Fürth, 8 May 1945. By the way all German planes were photographed at Fürth, both the Ju 87 D-5 and the Bf 109 G-14 being depicted upon arrival in the morning of 8 May 1945 as they surrendered. Here another color shot of the Ju 87 D-5:

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Interesting is the label Lehr motor (training engine) under the engine indicating this was a mechanic school airframe?

Not necessarly for mechanics (only). It might also indicate, that this is a static airframe, the engine is only to be used for demonstration only.
so this could be also a flight / pilot's training school.

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

I have this Me262A-1/Ur a WNr 500100, a FWE Eger-assembled jet with the typical FWE camouflage, white 26, originally operated by 2./NAGr 6, found at Lechfeld a/f in May '45. The high numerals seem to be applied when servicing with EJG 2.
Can somebody verify the WerkNr below the tail surfaces? The 4th digit seems to a "2" for me.

Regards
RolandF

I don't think that these aircraft were operated by 2./NAGr. 6, which wasn't in Bavaria, nor do the double digits fit with the known markings (solid and single-digit) carried by 1./NAG 1. What there was at Lechfeld was a conversion Kommando for Me 262 reconnaissance pilots, apparently part of III./EJG 2's training programme. There's a lot of uncertainty about what was going on but what I know is here: file:///Users/nickbeale/Documents/Nick's%20stuff/Website/gbweb/recon/262/report.html

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

That´s why I asked about the WNr. I have WNr 500100 as with 2./NAGr 6 on April 5th, '45 at Unterschlauersbach and Burg b Magdeburg and with 1./NAGr 1 at Altengrabow on April 8th, '45.

Regards
RolandF
