JG2 Loss 14 July 1943

A 109 of 12/JG2 crashed in the vicinity of La Chapelle-du-Bois-des-Faulx on July 14, 1943, after the German pilot apparently bailed out following an engagement with USAAF B-17s. Anyone have the pilot's name and details of his encounter?

JG 2 Loss 14 July 1943

Hello

Unfortunately, there does not appear to be much information available about this incident. Die Jagdfliegerverbände der Deutschen Luftwaffe 1934 bis 1945 Teil 10/IV has the following:

14 July 1943: Bf 109 G-4 (W.Nr. 19 794) flown by an unknown pilot of 12./JG 2 who baled out following aerial combat, crashed at La Capelle, 100%

I hope this helps you a little!

Horrido!

Leo
