Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Help needed, folks!

I've just uploaded many Eastern front pics taken between 1943 and 1944. They are all stemming from the Bundesarchiv but are not searchable through their Internet portal. As they were published by Bryan Philpott way back in 1980, their caption does mainly not include either unit or location:

Thanks in advance for all your help

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

And this time another challenge:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2809206...in/photostream
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2809206...in/photostream

and:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2809206...in/photostream
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2809206...in/photostream

Are these two sets of two pics taken on the same airfield? If yes or no, which airfield(s)?

Cheers
Marc

Hello Marc,

My records indicate that Si204D, WNr. 221056, DG+PH, was found abandoned at Straubing. I think what you have are photos of that and the other aircraft before and after their destruction.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

And I can say that this Bf 109 from KG(J) 55 was definitely photographed at Straubing. It becomes clear when you compare it to other photos from this location. Nothing more to add I am afraid, but there is a good chance that Steve is right with his assumption..

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Marc, i m convinced that the already very known 109 nose from KG(J)55 and probably posted somewhere on your pages (got some difficulties to find it) is also from Straubing. Actually here you can see it's nose with a yellow nosed Fw190 backward which is part from a serie i believe pictured at Straubing. (it is probably different than yellow 25+I )

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Olivier,

I see very well which picture you mean... and I know I have it somewhere, but can't find it as well. Darn it! Given time, I will implement new sets by Gruppen and Geschwadern. This should enable an easier cross referencing...

Cheers
Marc

Look at "Pilsen"

Not the same spiral on spinner comparing with "Gelbe 25". It seems we have three planes of KG(J)55, haven't we?

Regards, Franck.
