Re: JG 51 and 57, Helmut Lohoff

Hi Guys,

Problem or not?
Is that album a fake????
- Don't understand the link between Lohoff and JG 2/132.
- Rote 12 picture was available well before.
- All D-1 are depicted - see Bert Hartmann site - in JFS 2 in 1941. OK, why not before of course, but.. JFS 2 was formed in January 1940 well after Lohoff became flieger. And we know, for example through some eBay pictures we got recently - that Jagdfliegerschule Schleissheim did bear very different kind of markings.
- The D-1 picture on test, front view is a well known picture.
- Last, WNr.1078 is attributed to another pilot - Hauck, Friedrich. Lt. here http://www.me109.info/display.php?a=e&fid=2939

Exactly the same picture with the same hand writings on it, though the Hauck victory stood on 6 September 39 while it's writen May 40 on the picture.
By the way JG77 still wore 39 camo in May 40? The answer is NO!

So the question is:
Is that album a fake?
Or
Did Lohoff make an album with others' pictures? Hence another kind of fake.

4700 USD!!!!!

Cheers, Franck.

Re: JG 51 and 57, Helmut Lohoff

Lohoff was 11 February 1942 POW after an emergency landing.
The cause is the air combat and somewhere as the cause of the engine failure.
Which cause is more accurate, please?

Thanks for the answers.
