Help with photos of Ju88A-1 crashed in France on 09.05.40

Hello,

For the EoE Project, we're working on a detailed listing of all German losses in France during the Phoney War/Sitzkrieg period from 01.09.39 to 09.05.40. So far this is the only Ju88 Loss I've found on French soil during that period.

"9 May 1940: 1.(F)/123 Junkers Ju88A-1. Suffered engine failure during reconnaissance of airfields between Chartres and Tours and belly-landed at Azy, France, north-east of Bourges. (Beo) Lt Franz Oswald, (Ff) Stabsfw Georg Kühhorn, (Bf) Uffz Ewald Stratmann, and (1 Wart) Uffz Franz Bauer all captured unhurt – later released. Aircraft fired by crew 100% write-off."

1) Does anyone know of any other Ju88s lost on French soil during this period?

2) Does anyone know of any photos of this incident? This was immediately before the Blitzkrieg, which began the next day.

Thanx for any help.

Frederic,

Thanx for responding. I look forward to hearing from you with a copy of the photo. I'm sending you a PM with my personal email address. Do you have other photos of Phoney War LW Losses in France?

Mztti,

Thanx for jumping in here. I had the loss in Switzerland and another in Belgium on April 20, 1940, but hadn't yet noticed the downed Ju88A-1 at Ozolles.

I have no photos of this loss. Does anyone else have any photos of this one? (4.(F)/121, Ju 88 A-1, Ozolles),

For good copies, perhaps you can get in touch with Dan Gilberti, the webmaster of this website?

Regards,
Frederic

Frederic,

Thanx. Yes, that's definitely the one. Another one in the DB. I haven't previously been in touch with Dan Gilbert, although I've looked at his website in the past. Can you send me a copy of his email address if you have it?

W.Nr. listed there is fiction. This number not yet produced, appearing 8 months later, in December 1940. -ed

Frederic,

Thanx for sending the contact info for Dan Gilberti.

Ed, also thanx for warning me about the bogus W.Nr. posted on that website. Do you know of any other Ju88 forced landings or crashes in France, Belgium or the Netherlands prior to 10.05.40 besides these two?
