Re: Ghostbombers updates

Hello!

Once again marvellous piece of research, Nick!

I wonder if any photo of the He 219 B4+AA has surfaced yet? The +AA at Denmark post-war is said have no relation to NJ-Staffel Norwegen (but what it is then?). Do you know anything more of this issue, Junker?


Regards,
Kari

Interesting, the Ju 88 C-6 360176 was C9+AE (V/NJG 5) thougt was or had been the personal aircraft of ace´Prinz zo Sayn. Wittgestein in 1942/1943. FB Leichsenring records this with this code in April 1943. No fate yet recorded.

Hi Kari.

I'm beginning to suspect that +AA in Kastrup could indeed be the Njst. Norwegen Maschine.

Re: Ghostbombers updates

The book "Stirlings in Action with the Airborne Forces", by Dennis Williams, Pen & Sword, has on page 277 a photo of a machine gun breech, identified as being from S Sugar of 620 Sqn, lost over Norway on 28/29 December 1944. On it is an inscription. "Abschuss am 28.12.44. Hauptmann Vogt."
Regards
Russell

Re: Ghostbombers updates

The latest updates to my website, posted today, are:
  • A substantial expansion of the Kommando Schenck article, including an analysis of published accounts of when the unit's Me 262s first arrived in France and went into action, plus some conclusions of my own.
  • Correction to the Jagdgruppe 200 article re the Werk Nummer of a Bf 109 abandoned at Aix-Les-Milles. (Thanks to Franck for spotting that).
  • Minor corrections to the I./JG 2 in Italy article.

Re: Ghostbombers updates

Posted this evening:
  • A new article, based on Ultra, about Kampfgruppe 100's arrival in France in August 1940 and its first four weeks of operations there. No promises but this may prove to be the first of in series on aspects of the air fighting over Britain and France in 1940. It all depends on how many oportunities I get for the necessary for research how the material turns out.
  • Minor corrections and layout changes to several pages throughout the site.
