Air clash on 10.05.40 over Metz

Hi,


on 10.05.40 at 15.25 Fw.Litjens from 4/JG53 claimed one Curtiss s/d over Metz. This was most probably MB-152 which was damaged in this action. I wonder if there is somebody who can provide me with further info concerning the French unit, serial and pilot name?

TIA.

Regards

Robert

Hi Robert,

According to Paul Martin in "Invisibles Vainqueurs",
Bloch 152 downed on may 10 1940 was the following :

GC 1/8 MB 152 Cpt Adrien Astier downed at Chambley.
The plane could destroy a DO17 before being involved in a dog fight with Me109 where its tails was broken. Pilot was KIA. German bomber felt at Mars-la-Tour (54).

I hope this could helps.

Hi Stephane,


I know this and I think he was s/d probably by Olt.W.Lippert some time earlier.
I`m searching after damaged or even slightly damaged MB-152 in later clash.

TIA

Regards

Robert
