The 109 is a WNF built Bf 109 G-14 W.Nr. 511 8.9 "Schwarze 1", unknown training unit, possibly found at Schleissheim, May 1945.

Cheers
Marc

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Nice find, Snautzer

This seems to be the airfield at Ainring. Another shot of He 111 "??+JW" can be seen on page 61 in the book "Doras of the Galland Circus" by Jerry Crandall. Also of note is the "Mistel" gear on the Do 217. This plane might have belonged to the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug (perhaps for experimental flights with the Me 328 or DFS 228?). According to Technical Intelligence Report No. E-34 (also quoted in Crandall's book) one Do 217 was captured at Ainring. I bet it's the one in these Ebay photos..

Cheers,
Christian

EDIT: I just see that the same TI report mentions a Ju 88, equipped for carrying a V-1. Would love to see a shot of this one too..

Anyone here with copy of this report?

Best regards

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Hello Ed,

I got a copy of the report on Ainring,#E-14 dated 28th June 1945 which is also reproduced in Jerry Crandalls „Doras of the Galland Circus“.
It has three pages, mainly on the research institute itself, on buildings and experimental items found, among them a complete He 280 without jet-engines undergoing stress-tests.

The operational types found were only listed without any notes on subtypes, Werknummern or codes:
3 (?) ME 108
7 ME 109
3JU 87
5 JU 52
3 FW 190 (long nose)
4 HE 111
1 ME 110
1 DO 217
1 JU 88 (with attachment for carrying V-1)
5 Fiesler Storch (sic)
1 TE Transport (Siebel 204).

Published photos show that there were at least two Ar 96 trainers and four DFS 230 gliders around. I would like to see a photo of the Ju 88. Jerrys booklet is full of nice photos anyway!

HTH

Carl

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Thanks for your insight, Christian. For the 109 shots, I would doubt Ainring as there are definitely no Alps to be seen in the background...

Cheers
Marc

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Is it unusual that the 109G-14 has C3 in the primer tank fuel triangle as opposed to B4?

Cheers,

D.B.
