Oblt. Burghardt?? II./KG 200 loss of Feb 3rd 1945

Hi, guys.

According to GenQu6Abt II./KG 200 lost a FW 190A8 on this day near Hagenow.

The pilot is given as Otto Burghardt, but in my list the surname is stricken and a new name written in pencil or ink, which I cannot read.

Has anyone got further information??

Regards,
Andreas

Hello Andreas!

The name was changed to Burkhard.
It is written with pencil above the old name.

Regards
Dirk

Hi Andreas,


Oblt. Otto Burkhard was one of the pilots from KG30 attached to the 6./KG200. He was shot down while a formation of three Mistels was jumped by P-51s from the 55th FG, which were looking for targets of oppertunety on their return flight from an escort mission over Berlin.
I guess that Burkhard together with Obgefr. Joachim Uhlig and Obfw. Arnold Klähn (both form KG30, also attached to 6./KG200), flew possible protection for the Mistels or they were on a training flight but in the area of engagement.
Oblt. Burkhard flew a Fw190 A-8 WNr.737 989.
The whole story is nicely recalled in Robert Forsyth's "Mistel - German composite aircraft and operations 1942 - 1945".

best regards,
Tomislav
