Re: Heinkel HE 115C w/nr 2754 8L+GH

Many thanks guys.

Does anybody have a picture I could use in a book of a Heinkel 115C? Ideally not copyrighted, and happy to credit the Source.

Hi Chris

I have just ordered the book "Luftwaffe Bombers Battle of Britain by Chris Goss"

Is that the book - red sort of cover?

Regards

Alan

Re: Heinkel HE 115C w/nr 2754 8L+GH

As the crew of this aircraft all became POW's they were also interrogated by British authiorities. Items found in the wreck included ration cards from Norderney seaplane station. This along with other contemporary Luftwaffe documents, show that Staffel 1./906 was stationed in Norderney on 16. September 1940.

Good to see you again, Seaplanes. Haven't seen you in a while.

Re: Heinkel HE 115C w/nr 2754 8L+GH

Update....

I have now been in contact with several people on this crashed Heinkel.

The aircraft's searchlight was "acquired" by one of the people who found the plane when it crashed, the light was fitted to a Ferguson Tractor in the 1950s at a nearby farm. The Tractor was then traded and believed to be somewhere in the West Coast of Scotland.

Some aluminium was taken from the plane, and it was made into a ring. The person who has the ring "somewhere" is going to dig it out and take a photo of it. The same person reckons he has the binoculars from the plane. Again he is going to dig them out to photograph.

Does anybody know where the RAF records would be for defusing bombs on the plane?
