JG53 Bf109-Collided with flak emplacement!

Hello all.

Has anyone got the pilot details for the following incident please?

On the 9th of August 1940, a Bf109 E-1 from I./JG53 crashed at Guernsey Aerodrome due to engine failure during a sortie. The aircraft collided with a light flak emplacement and 3 gunners were killed and 2 injured!

I have some names from graves at the Fort George German war cemetary on Guernsey which probably account for the lost gunners. However, can anyone provide pilot details: apparently he was badly injured in the crash.

Thanks in advance....Steve.

Hello Steve,

I've checked my BoB literature -
JG 53 was in the course of change the base to Guernsey.
T
here were 3 gunners dead and 2 gunners AND the pilot wounded.
Unfortunately, I haven't found name of the pilot or any further details.
Hope this helps.

Regards,

Nef
