The A.I.2(g) report on Florennes says 712185 was a Do 217, "destroyed". Only one Bf 109 is listed but with no details except, again, "destroyed".

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

During their time at Florennes the 1.(F)/121 was only equipped with the Me 410. The Staffel received the first Bf 109G-6 in September at Langendiebach.

Thanks, Nick !

Merlin,
You're positive about the arrival of Bf 109 G-6 in the 1.(F)/121 inventory after they left Florennes ?

Cheers
Marc

A 1.(F)/121 strength return from early October is attached. If I find anything earlier, I'll post it another time.

Only Me 410s on strength on 12 and 13 September. On the 13th, 1.(F)/121 announced that its Field Post should now be sent to Lagendiebach. The first report of Bf 109s on strength I've found was on 16 September (attached composite image, original goes over two pages).

The first Bf 109 Werk Nummern they mention are 412588 (u/s on 24 September) 412484 (u/s on 26 September).
