Hi Rick

At the time of his death Nägele was serving with 6./JG 77 based in Italy.

On 9 June 1944, Nägele participtaed in an interception of escorted USAAF B-24 bombers returning from Germany. In the subsequent aerial combat he was shot down and killed attacking the bombers, his Bf 109 G-6 (WNr 441 129) "Yellow 3" crashing near Monte Aleso.

Nägele was credited with 18 victories, including 8 over the Eastern Front.

Cheers
Gordon
