Re: FW 200 crashed 17.03.1941 in France

I am interested in the STKZ batch SG+KA to KZ

I have seen various WNr connections in the range 0026 to 0050 but none makes any real sense to me.
Does anyone have any accurate situation for this batch?

My present situation is
SG+KC Wnr 0027 to SG+KZ WNr 0050

However WNr 0026 has been reported as SG+KA (or possibly BS+AZ) and WNr 0050 has been reported as DE+OE.

Don't know how much guesswork there is behind these details....

Cheers
Stig

I believe that Haller did not survive the war.

Reg.Rat. Dr. Hermann Erhard Haller (born 11 Dec 1911 at Schwenningen)
Died (I do not know the cause) 11 June 1941 Luftwaffe Hospital Paris-Clichy.

He is buried at Champigny St.Andre (Block 3. Row 22. Grave 1897)

cheers Peter

Re: FW 200 crashed 17.03.1941 in France

Hello gentlemen,

Here is the additional information I have about the crash of the Fw 200C-3 (FK+AK), crashed on 17th March 1941 :

- precise place of the crash : the village named Plogoff (not Audierne) and, inside this village, the hamlet named "Roscoff"

- time of the crash : 15h20

- fate of Reg.Rat. Hermann Haller : badly wounded in the crash (not bailing out over the sea) ; he died on 11th of June 1941 at 13h15, at the German military hospital of Paris-Clichy, because of his serious wounds ; first buried at the Paris-Clichy cemetery, next re-buried at the German cemetery of Champigny-Saint André (Normandy)

I was in touch with direct French witnesses of the crash, including a young boy (3 years old in 1941), whose the house was completely destroyed by the aircraft. By chance, this boy was "only" wounded and recovered from his wounds.

Best regards from a hot West of France

Pierre

PlQ matches with the Plogoff/Pointe du Raz location and the fact the crew were reported to have baled out over the sea was reported by the Luftwaffe-obviously those who died were in the wreckage. From where did you get F8+AK as the code-eyewitness?

Hello Tony,

The aircraft crashed on the way back of its mission, to its base of Bordeaux-Mérignac. It stopped at Brest-Lanvéoc to refuel, and crashed just after take off, probably because of a very poor visibility.
