Hi John!

Are you 100% sure it was a G6? The G4 werk block was 19093-19999...but there is some sort of cross-over where g6's were also in that block...

any pics of that bird?

Hi.

According to my loss database I have two losses for this aircraft, both in Kalamaki, both with IV./JG 27, about 4 months apart in time:

http://www.ahs.no/ref_db/lw_loss_pub...?lossid=130673

http://www.ahs.no/ref_db/lw_loss_pub...?lossid=119140

And BTW, both times listed as G-6, even if this is not proof positive of subtype.

I would assume that an additional loss record will exist, does your relic imply a sea or land wreck?

Regards,
Andreas B

Hi all

At 20. April 1944 this plane belonged to 3./JGr.Süd and crashed nearby Avignon/F. It wears the code yellow 20.
The pilot, Uffz Eugen Marquardt, was killed.

best wishes

Thanks JoMe. What is the source of your information?

Harrison there are a number of G-6s in the 19800-999 range, close to 150 losses.
