Hi Michel,

according to the "Bodenplatte" book by Manrho and Pütz this aircraft, marked as "Blue 3", was flown by Uffz. Horst Tharann and belly-landed nw of Geilenkirchen because of AAA damage. The pilot was taken prisoner.

Cheers,
Christian

Hello,

Uffz. Horst Tharann (8.Sturm./JG 4) may have crash-landed near Hannut (Belgium) going to attack (or returning from?) Le Culot airfield.

Best regards

Re: FW-190 A9 werkenr.960324 8./JG4

Come on guys, there is a little bit more to tell about this. Did anybody check my book....:-)))....should be in it. I am not able to add more to this post now, but I will respond in a few days time. So, do some checking and thinking and make a guess why I wrote that this a/c crashed northwest of Geilenkirchen...

Cheers,

John

John's and Ron Pütz's book is definitely the authoritative source on 'Bodenplatte'.
