Re: Ghostbombers updates

Thanks for your continuing hard work, Nick. You are one of the few people who appreciate the importance of ULTRA sources in the history of WWII.

Frankly, no one should write a story about anything in the ETO, without sourcing ULTRA. You've done that!

Re: Ghostbombers updates

I've just posted a series of updates to my web site, quite a lot of which seem to involve Bf 109s:
  • A new article about aircraft lost in air raids: by III./JG 26 (Nancy, 25 May 1944); JG 27 (Angers/Soucelles, 26 June 1944); and E-Stelle Karlshagen (9 July 1944).
  • Jagdgruppe 200: an addition to the events of 12 July 1944 and more about Bf 109 G-6 W.Nr. 163552.
  • More about the Bf 109s of 3./NAG 13 (W.Nr. 710000 series) in Spring/Summer 1944.
  • Staffel Kaatsch: more about the history of Bf 109 G-6 W.Nr. 163161.
  • Geschwader Bongart: two "target flights" on 27 January 1944; a "new" Re. 2002 mission on 24 June; more about Ju 88 C-6 W.Nr. 750886 and 750952, He 111 W.Nr. 5113, Bf 109 G-5 W.Nr. 110395 and "Bf 109 G-12" WNr. 360930 (thanks to Ed North); an operation on 16 August (thanks to Philippe Cannone); another loss from 2./ZG 1 on 7 June 1944; more about III./KG 100's attack on the Forêt de Rieumes on 17 July; and a final(?) mention of the Geschwader on 15 December 1944.
  • Minor corrections and editing.

Re: Ghostbombers updates

Nick,
I referred to Ju 88 C-6 360390 (not 360930), then Ju 88´s mentioned 06.07.1944 (8207, 2383 & 6216) certainly were Ju 88 A-5 versions, and known surviours and mentioned in other Ultra messages earlier (maintance related).
Also Ju 88 C-6 "750886" falls into blank block (blank nummerical range), and is therefore most likely corrupt (therefore “not known here.” is correct from Technical Officer 14/15.07.44) but may relate to 750686 (this number is close enough for simple typo error), but Ju 88 C-6 750952 seems valid number, known 28.06.1944 with I NJG 2 - i.e. Ju 88 C-6 4R+GH, known on unit strength (SN2, 25A, Schráge, Doedel M2, autopilot u/s, 16:00 hrs Chaeaudun) 28.06.44 (TNA HW5 CX/MSS/T.234/14)
Ju 88 C-6 705686 on 14/15.06.44 is corrupt (number did not exist), likely C-6 750686 meant.

Adding Ju 88 A-5 0880504 PB+GB 11./Gesch. Bongart for one shot down 28.06.44 [Salonen / NVM]

Finally, I have enjoyed reading the updates on this very obscure unit. Thanks! -ed

THanks Ed, I'll correct that.

Nice Guy.

Regards, Franck.
