Code on Dornier : KG 255

Good evening,
i have some interrogations about this Dornier,
Photo coming from Metz Aréa 1941 in Théory (Hm ....)
we can see part of insigna from one Kg : 51 or 255
Code for KG 51 need to be 9K +..
On this plane, we see ?P+TH or ?R+TH,
So certainly Kg 255 but circa 1939 not 1941 ...
Who can help ...

Re: Code on Dornier : KG 255

Hi,

Dorniers as such aren't my thing but, if it helps........

It definitely looks like a KG51 emblem, the top of the first letter seems to me to be a V, and the second more a P than an R. How about an aircraft with factory/radio codes ie VP+TH or VR+TH, could these be in a Dornier series?

Probably not much help!

Regards

David

Re: Code on Dornier : KG 255

Thanks for your réponse,

Yes i think you right, it's one Plane from KG 51 Edelweiss with factory code,
i have read somewhere one old article who say the KG 255 has Edelweiss before KG 51, but i know now it's not exactly similar ...
I search about VP +TH and VR+TH

Best Regards, Dan

KG51 was formed from KG255 in the general reorg around May '39. Retained the Eidelweis. Refs show Do17M on strength although my first reaction was that this is a P.
