Thank you Matti.

Kracker does list the machine as coded << + - but your information is what I was thinking (engine failure after Flak damage on the engine). This information is also not listed at Kracker. And the 100% of damage may have ocurred by fire, after the "Notlandung". Not sure though if he was (Major Reusch) eventually rescued by Whermacht troops after the hard landing, if he passed out during this landing. But you clarified a lot of things.
Recently two possible pictures of HIS machine were sold at Ebay for more than 150 Euros each one....
Thank you very much for your ALWAYS helpful answers.
Adriano
