Missions flown by KG(J) 6

Hello,

I am looking for information about missions flown by KG(J) 6 from airfields around Prague in the last month of the war.
I found some information about the units few Me-262s, but I can't find any info about missions flown by the units Me-109s and Fw-190s. Does anyone know more? I am especially interested in 8./KG(J) 6.
I guess something can be found in JaPo Publishings "Luftwaffe over Czech Territory", unfortunatly it looks like the book is sold out.

Peter, I heard about this book, but it is mainly about the Me-262. I am more interested in the missions flown by the Me-109s and Fw-190s of KG(J)6.

Maybe someone who owns "Luftwaffe over Czech Territory" can have a look if it contains the information I am looking for.

It doesn't. There may be some detail in the text, though I doubt it. It mostly contains photos and losses - not to minimize the book at all. Wonderful book, but there is only so much they can do given the holes in the 1945 documentation.

That's too bad. Does anyone have another idea were I might find information?

Very little is written in Czech book "Praha v Plamenech = Prague in flames".
Table of losses is there and some memories...But I cannot say how new it may be to someone interested in these units...pages 80-86.

Re: Missions flown by KG(J) 6

Attached is an article written by Jan Horn about KG(J) 6 operations. There is some info about Bf 109 missions. Jan Horn is also the author of two books about Kampfgeschwader 6. See here http://horn-me262.de/. I hope this helps a little.

Thank you very much Hans Mcilveen. No infos about Bf 109 combat missions in the article, but none the less very interesting.

Jan Horns book 'Wir flogen gen Westen ' has a 10 page chapter titled ' Umschulung zu Jagdfliegen im Raum Prag '. It also includes the losses of Bf109s and Me262s of KG(J)6 in its loss lists.

Re: Missions flown by KG(J) 6

Did Horn mention the cause of the Bf-109 losses in his book? Were they all due to accidents or also in combat?
All Bf-109 losses mentioned in his article seem to be due to accidents.
