Ju 88 / 1096

Hi all

According to a GQM loss report from On July 24, 1943, the Ju 88/1096 of KBS 2 crashed near Breitbrunn/A (near FP Hörsching/A).
The crew:
FF: Fw Wilhelm Schönborn +
BO: Uffz Erhard Stauber +
Sch Flg Helmuth Flohr +
Sch Flg Arthur Göppert +
was killed in the crash.

The WNr. can't be true because the
Ju 88 A-4/1096 was 80% damaged on July 6, 1942 by the 4/KG 77 in Sicily -and-
Ju 88 A-4/141096 was still flying in March 1944 with the 10/KG 54.
Can anyone help?

best wishes
JoMe

Servus JoMe!

Alas, I believe you have been bitten by one of the major problems in Ju 88 Werknummer research, the existence of several Ju 88 14x xxx number series (140 xxx, 141 xxx, 142 xxx , 144 xxx, etc.) plus the annoying Luftwaffe practice of frequently dropping off the "14" when recording these machines.

In short, try researching the Ju 88 WNr. 141 096. I suspect that's your kite.

Also consider that even though reported as 80% damaged that doesn't always necessarily mean that the aircraft is a total write-off.
