Re: Ghostbombers updates

Interesting data:

15 June 1944
CX/MSS/T221/70

From (Roman) I./KG 66, Abt. IT to Feldluftgau W. France, QM-QM 1 arms and equipment, (smudge) 4 on 15/6:

For repainting newly allocated a/c (13 Ju 88 S-3) the following is required:

100 kg. thinning, 7200.00

40 kg. a/c paint (black) 7160.22

30 kg. a/c paint (blue) 7160.24

For ops, immediate allocation (collection by receiving authority) requested.

NOTE: This appears to establish that (Roman) I./KG 66 is re-equipping on to Ju 88 S-3. Compare T220/131. T221/26 also mentioned Ju 188.


Thanks for all you do on your site, Nick.

Cheers,

D.B.

Re: Ghostbombers updates

Nick,

thank you for your recent updates, always an interesting reading...

One note from my side about Bf 110 G-4 730324 on 01.02.1945:

IMHO the correct unit is NJG 6 instead of NAGr. 6. Bf 110 G-4, 730 324 "2Z+EL" of Ofw. Paul Faden (2./NJG 6) was shot down in during the mission on 01. to 02.02.1945 in the area Mosheim - Waldmühlbach, very close to Roigheim. All of the crew survived, but two crewmembers were listed as WIA.

Regards,

Heuser
