Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Hello Marc-André,

a beautiful picture indeed, a perfect late 1944 G-10 from Erla.

Werknummer 491617 does not fit, as this Werknummernblock ends at 491530.
There was a 490617 with BAL 5th November 1944 and a 151617 with BAL 5th February 1945 and damaged 19th Febuary 1945 with KG (J) 6.

Greeting

Carl

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Ah, great information again, Carl!

After checking again the picture, there is more then a fair chance that the actual W.Nr. is 490 617 indeed. Given the angle of the plane regarding the photographer, the 9 and the 0 do look merged together...

Thanks again for your highly valued help !

Cheers
Marc

I'm a little concerned that the engine is running but the cockpit appears to be empty!

Nick,

Don't you worry ! One can see the top of the head - with Mütze - of Reiher's Erster Wart, who scrutinizes his engine gauges...

Cheers
Marc

Quite sure that's an a/c in the 490xxx- and/ or 491xxx-range ... it had the small wing bulges and the position of W.Nr. say it was delivered before the end of Dezember 1944.

#817: the correct spelling was "Heiterblick" (was the Werk I).

You're welcome, Franck. As for the copyright, no worries: this batch of images was posted on my flickr pages at the direct request of Martin Reiher, son of Gerhard Reiher, the former 8./JG 3 Flugzeugführer.

Cheers
Marc

Me 109 G14 Kroat

Bonjour,
You have recently added to the galery a photo of a Kroat Me 109.
The new photo shows the G14 "black 10" (not the G14 AS plane "black 4").
Best regards.
RB

Hello Rémi !

You're thinking of this picture ?

If confirmed, thanks for the correction.

Cheers
Marc
