Lt Friedrich-Karl Thien KG 100 Heinkel Crash

Hi would like to ask if anyone could provide me with information on Lt Thiens Career, I do know that he served as a pilot in KG 100 and promoted to Oberleutnant and was awarded the wound badge, not sure of the colour after a plane crash following a ramming by a Russian aircraft but that is all I have on him. There was a photo with a crashed Heinkel with the letters GN+N and I. I think it’s an I as it’s in a different colour looks like a crash dated 1940, not sure if it was his aircraft ? Any information would be good.

Re: Lt Friedrich-Karl Thien KG 100 Heinkel Crash

Thanks Jim, I did read the bordfunkers report on the ramming, the Russian aircraft was badly hit before ramming and damaged a metre of fuselage and then crossing the lines on return was hit by an anti aircraft shell, Thien hit a farmhouse and was rescued by war correspondents. Just a pity I could not find out what happened to him after this wether he still flew or his injuries grounded him.

Lt Friedrich-Karl Thien KG 100 Heinkel Crash

Following the 28-Sep-1941 incident, Oblt. Thein spent 12 months recuperating before being assigned to Frontflug – Sammlergruppe ‘Dortmund’ on 20-10-42 to 12-11-42; Nachtjagdraumführer 12 from 13-11-42 to 14-12-43 and Stab 1. Jagddivision from 15-12-43. His injuries meant he was awarded the Verwundetenabzeichen in Silber on 26-11-1941.

I would be very interested in learning where the details of his crash on 28-Sep-41 have been documented; I take it the Bordfunkers report is in the Balke book on K.Gr. 100?

Hope this helps.

Regards Richard.

The "Ostmark" was part of the Reich back then and its newspapers used the same PK reports as everywhere else in German-held territory. I have primarily used that database for the Vienna edition of the Völkischer Beobachter. This does have some "local content" but the war news seems to be standard. For more "approved-by-Goebbels" newspapers, you can look online at those held by La Bibliothèque Nationale Française (the "gallica" database) or the Zeitschriften Datenbank.

Re: Lt Friedrich-Karl Thien KG 100 Heinkel Crash

Thank you for the information gentlemen, the Radio operators report was on a French website, could not see which book it was from, I believe it was one of the KG100 books, I am being sent the group through the post and it does come with the crash photographs which I am happy to share with this website, the second crashed Heinkel photograph GN + N and what looks like either an I or 1 in a different colour is also with the group, looks like a belly landing with minimal damage.
