Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

And now a question about Bf 109 G-8 W.Nr. 201 765, currently offered on sale at eBay:
http://www.ebay.de/itm/137-Orig-Foto...wAAOSwWxNYyuDy

This picture is a known Signal Corps photo, from the James Crow collection, and already published by Janowicz in 2007.

Unit and location are unknown, Western Front, late 1944 or early 1945. I suspect a 2./NAGr. 13 machine; any confirmation possible ?

Cheers
Marc

Hi,

I wonder if it wasn't one among the many JG53 machines got by JG300 ...

Cheers, Franck.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

At long last a new Erla built Bf 109 G-10 shows up:

The dilapidated dark RVB band could point towards a JG 27 machine. Any other information would be highly appreciated.

Cheers

Sorry Marc, but not a G-10; and not new, either.

I knew I recognized that FW 190 wing from somewhere.

Interesting to note the difference in deterioration in both photographs.

And it appears the Americans were flying a K-4...
