Looking for info - Do 217 K-1, Werknr. 4470

Is there any info about the unit(s) this plane had belonged to? My guess would be IV./KG 2, but that's just an assumption. The attached photo shows it in Tutow after capture by the Red Army. Unfortunately nothing but the aircraft letter "M" can be seen..

Regards,
Christian

I have WNr. 4469 & 4471. While a few losses per WNr. within the immediate vicinity are for KG 2 & KG 66 , most of the machines in this WNr. block are for Nachtaufkl.St.

Hi Christian,
the aircraft was manufactured in December 1942 by Dornier-Nord in Wismar. It was captured in servisable condition by the Russians in may 1945. Unfortunately this is all I have on this WNr.

Regards,

Norbert
