It seems, that Willy Frings was killed on ground. No aircraft NVM available.

Hi all,

Does any one knows more about the following loss in Greece? The pilot was a member of a transport unit.

Re: Unknown loss in Greece

Byron: On 15 Sept 1944, the 325th Fighter Group of the 15th Air Force shot down two Ju-52s. I shot one of them down and John Simmons received credit fot the 2nd one. I of course have no way of knowing if one of the pilots was Engelbert Sorg. This was an estimated 20 miles west of Athens.

Re: Unknown loss in Greece

Good-morning Arthur,

Thank you for this very useful information. I am convinced now, Engelbert Sorg was flying a Ju 52 (likely of Transportgeschwader 4), killed by an American plain and not on the ground of Elefsis by bombs.

regards from Salonika
Byron
