Re: Any info on this Ju-88?

Beautiful photos, Bob.

Here is what I have on W.Nr. 4001:

Ju 88A-4, W.Nr. 4001, IV./KG 30, 24-Oct-43, Technical failure, Denmark, NW of Aalborg, Bruch 20%.

However, I think your photos show another accident, which happened at another (school?) unit and not in Denmark, but rather somewhere South.

What is the complete code on the fuselage (T_+AL)?

Re: Any info on this Ju-88?

Hey

This wheels-up landing plane was the Ju 88 A-1 / 4001 / TC + AL.
This aircraft belonged to Gr.KFS 2 and made a crash-landing because engine-trouble on 27. May 1941 by Puttling. The damage was 25 %. Latre the plane was repaired by Junkers-aeroplane repair-shop in Breslau-Langenau and flown there from 08. March to 07. April 1942.
Does anybody knows the time and place of manufacturing.

Could it be a A-12?

I have info that this aircraft was with FFS (B) 6 in 1943 as a A-12.

Regards,

Norbert

Re: Any info on this Ju-88?

I am not at home, so I can't confirm the original assembly date, but it has to be late 39 or early 40, I will check also the assembly location when I get home tonite. At the time of the crash in 1941, the a/c was probably not an A-12 (which were all umbau a/c) as I really don't think any were converted to that subtype until later.

Best regards,

Artie Bob

Re: Any info on this Ju-88?

Hi all

W.Nr. 0884001 etc..
Delivered in * March 1940 to January 1942
Serie Ju 88 A-1 / A-5 / A-4 (Dive-Bombers)

Lizence made fuselages by Norddeutcher Dornier Werke GmbH (Wismar <Perleberg?>) mounted with HWO wings, but Dornier-Sud (Friedrichshafen) made tails (Block II).
* Start of deliveries from NDD is belived around late February or early March 1940 [author]. The following is from BA-MA ´Schulen´ losses:

(W.Nr. 088)4001 Ju 88 A-1 / A-5 Gr.Kampffliegerschule 2
(Lw.Befh.Mitte) Non-OPS (S) engine failure and belly landed (25%) at Sauthern near Platting 27.05.1942 (BS Gefr. Willi Krebs and F Uffz. Wilhelm Kolatschek killed <amd in a/04.06.42>)
- Ju 88 A-12 FFS B 6 (Luftflotte Reich)
Non-OPS (S) technical troble and belly landed (15%) at Kolberg 22.06.1944 (F Uffz. Wilhelm Janßen injured)

Note the straight tip of the rudder, caracteristic of early A-1 / A-5 series machines.... also VDM (Metal) propellers... but it has A-5 type rear Beetle-Eyed twin-gun canopy frame...

I guess FFS B 6 was correct after all.


Thanks for the clarification,

Norbert
