Fw 190 A-2 3./JG 2 Tricqueville

Hi,
I have a few questions for this photo.
Does anyone know the airport, could it be Tricqueville Airport?
I think this is an Fw 190 A-2 from 3.Staffel JG 2.
Maybe W.Nr. 20208 ??? (FF Uffz.Rudolf Röbbers)
idn't know the number of this plane anywhere-crashed 19.8.1942
According to the photo, these could be numbers: "yellow 3,6,8 or 9"
Thank you very much,
best regards Tony

I visited Triqueville last year and have just written about it for Iron Cross magazine. All I can say is the aircraft were dispersed around an apple orchard and these are not apple trees

Thanks Chris,
On the back of the photo is written: Pont-Audemer.
The nearest airport was in Tricqueville.

So it could be a possibility as some Luftwaffe records do say Pont Audemer for Triqueville

Huppertz was appointed Staffelkapitän of 3./JG 2 based on the Channel front on 9 November 1942. So I would guess he might have flown with that plane

Huppertz took command of 3./JG 2 at the start of November 1942 and it is thought that by then they were at Marseilles. Looking at the leaves on the trees, this photo was taken earlier than then

Hi,
After using a more powerful scanner, I can confirm that it is an Fw 190 A-2 from 3.Staffel JG 2 W.Nr. 20208, on which 19.8.1942 crashed Uffz.Rudolf Röbbers.
* regards Tony
