Unidentified Aircrew

Again, found misfiled with other non-related photos, anyone have an idea as to who might be in these photos?

Re: Unidentified Aircrew

Hi Chris,

First Photo, guy on the right, with his back to the camera could very well be Walter Nowotny (Jg54 and Jg101).

Regards, Thomas

Re: Unidentified Aircrew

Thanks Thomas but it has been suggested the man on the right could be Horst Götz

Re: Unidentified Aircrew

Hi Chris,
the colour photo shows from left to right:
Olt Fred Leitner (Nachrichtenoffizier), Olt Günther Wegmann (pilot), Lt Joachim Weber (pilot) and Fw Hans Zeller( Jägerleitstand), all with EK262, later III./JG7.
Earlier, when Wegmann flew the Me110 with III./ZG26, Zeller was often his radio man / tail gunner.
You can find this colour photo in one of the books of the Smith/Creek Classic series about the Me262. In the Manfred Jurleit´s Me262 book (vol.2) you also find the same photo in black and white, but extended to the left , showing also Oberinspektor Grote.

Olt Wegmann, as Staka 9./JG7, was severely wounded in his Me262 on 18.03.45 and had to bail out (he lost his right lower leg). Lt Weber, 11./JG7, was lost on 21.03.45.

KR Karl
