Hi guys a new loss for me!
Very rare to have a report at this time showing a/c code and Werknummer!
Would love to see your photo Chris if possible to share it of course.
Best regs,
Steve.

Re: Do 17 Crash Kleinfurra 17 Nov 39

Hi, I have a querie for Matti if he could help, sorry to hijack your post Chris
it is relevant to the unit and timeframe.

20.10.39 3/KG77 Do17 Oblt.Kircheis killed, 2 others injured in a landing collision en- route to Werl at Nordhausen. Any other info on code or W.nr.
Is there a Bf. Koller included? and is another 3/KG77 a/c involved coded 3Z+EL.
Best regs,
Steve.

Steve,

I have not found any detailed information on this collision between two 3./KG 77 Do 17 Z on 20.10.1939 at 13.25. There were two wounded: BO Oblt Josef Köckeis (died of his wounds on 22.10.1939) and BF Köller, but I don´t know if they were both in 3Z+EL or not. No WNrs or code of the the other Do 17 known.

Matti

Hi Matti thanks for responding , yes I have the same information.
I suspect we may never know?

Chris, thanks ever so much for sharing this great photo. Interesting the prop spinner caps are not yellow as you might expect for a 3 staffel a/c. Unless its recently been delivered from the factory!

Kindest regs,
Steve.

The photo in post #8 shows a different aircraft.
That is the WNr.4179, the first Do 17Z manufactured by B&V. The plane was given after the test phase to GKS Faßberg in autumn 1939.
