Ups, my bad. I must be very tired or becoming dyslexic. Shame on me.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Hi there Gang,

As always, the Russian archives are full of unknown photographic material, like this overrun airfield between Elbe and Spree full with what seems to be Bf 109 G's and a lone Erla built G-6 or G-14.
https://vk.com/albums-140181428?z=ph...VUk2VDGsLVSpek

Any further details would be highly appreciated.

Cheers
Marc

Hi Marc, most of the other photos on this album page are captioned as being taken in Jüterbog - that helps pinning down the location at least a little bit.

ChristianK, richdlc, thanks for your help.

Jüterbog-Damm or Jüterbog-Waldlager are thus a fair possibility.

Here another shot down Bf 109, most probably a G-10 as evidenced by the "D" painted atop the DB 605 D.
