Biplane Henschel (123?) lost on 1/9/42...

Near Stalingrad with a major in the second cabin. Pilot killed, major taken as POW. Could it somehow be confirmed?

Hi...

Unlikely to be a Henschel Hs123... they were ground attack aircraft that didn't have second cabins, as far as I'm aware. If it was a Henschel it's more likely to have been a Henschel Hs126 parasol-winged reconnaisance monoplane. If the machine was carrying a high-ranking officer, the aircraft could conceivably have been a Fieseler Fi156 Storch.

Regards
