Re: Dornier 217 crashed in Salerno 16 sept. 1943

I still think this must be 6N+KN from 5./KG 100. Balke reports it lost (for reasons unknown) after a daytime attack at Salerno on 16 September.

By the way, be careful about interpreting the Istres flight dates since the aircraft would typically fly from Istres to Foggia and then stage the attack out of Foggia. So the date of departure from Istres might not match the date of attack.

Thanks again for your alway precious availablity! The crash site is on the way from Salerno to Foggia. The german aircraft was seen came from Salerno to Foggia direction. Therefore it already bombed ships in Salerno bay. The men who bailed landed in german control area so they perhaps returned in service with Luftwaffe. However in the area there were also USA paratroopers landed 14 septmber (operation GIANT III) just on the mountains around crash site. Perhaps they take someone prisoner. In a report from paratroopers spoken about a german airman take prisoner. Any help you can give is very appreciated!
