Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Dear Gang,

Here we go with some very interesting photos currently on offer:

1. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-Luftwaf...gAAOSwbL1dK3XL
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/tjgAA...XL/s-l1600.jpg

2. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-Luftwaf...oAAOSwKQJdK3eK

4. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-Luftwaf...AAAOSwxgZdK3gk
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/FSAAA...gk/s-l1600.jpg

If not mistaken, those four photos do depict Erla built Bf 109 G-14 W.Nr. 46x xxx "Weisse 13" from 13./JG 27.

Photo 1 is captioned in Jochen Prien, Peter Rodeike and Gerhard Stemmer, Messerschmitt Bf 109 im Einsatz bei der III. und IV./Jagdgeschwader 27, 1995, p. 441 as showing Ogfr. Fritz Krüger standing in front of this machine.

Photos 2-4 closely match the second photo published by Prien, Rodeike and Stemmer which caption informs us this is Lt. Wolf Otto aboard "Weisse 13". They probably were taken at the same time with the same pilot.

A new set of photos was put to auction today:

10. https://www.ebay.de/itm/3x-Foto-Luft...YAAOSwhJFdLiPr
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/z9YAA...Pr/s-l1600.jpg

Possibly from Ofhr. Müller's collection, as evidenced by photo 10, this second set shows another Eral built Bf 109 G-14, possibly "Gelbe 4", also late 1944. Ofhr Müller is recorded to have survived after bailing out from his stricken Bf 109 G-14 W.Nr. 460 638 on 26 November 1944 near Mellinghof. Source: Prien/Rodeike/Stemmer, III. & IV./JG 27, 1995, p.463.


Are any further details known about the planes, pilots and location ? is the hangar in photo 9. known ?

Thanks in advance
Marc

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

One of those unexpected photos which just showed up:
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/cZ0AA...p4/s-l1600.jpg

At least two wrecked Bf 109's from I./JG 4 can be recognised. The furthest away is IMHO a Bf 109 K-4, as evidenced by the position of the D/F loop base on the fuselage spine. Any ideas about the location ?

Cheers
