Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

I believe I have seen the large tower in post # 2401 before. Does that help to confirm the location?

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Another view of that G-6/R6 at Oberwiesenfeld ...
Expired auction.
Hence the 3/4 front view image is clearly not this machine.

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

The Ju 87 discussed earlier is coded D3+DL, so from 3./NSGr.2, and yes, it was also found at Oberwiesenfeld

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

And this one also, which came up in 2007 (according to the date I saved it). You can just make out the vertical part of the L, I think.

There was an earlier D3+DL, lost on 7 October 1944 (Ju 87 D-5, W.Nr. 131584) but that one was 98% damaged.

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

Thanks Jim, I knew I have seen this one before I think this is even a G-6 variant, by the way. In the J&P photo you can see the G-style tailplane (as well as another plane of apparently the same unit, coded "A"). I think this might be one the few night-fighters used as ground-attack airplanes in the last weeks of the war. A rare bird indeed.

But I am puzzled as to the location of "Ebendorf". There was no german air base with this name. There is an Ebendorf west of Magdeburg, but this is not close to any known Fliegerhorst. Can someone shed any light on this?

Ebendorf-Seenwalde, currently Piasutno, Poland. Strange that a GI would have had photos from that location in 1945, they never went that far East...

Any other possibility around Ebendorf ?

Cheers

At the bottom of page 69 of the same book there's a Ju 88 S with a GI posing in front, again captioned as Ebendorf. If you look behind his shoulder (and under the fuselage) then E is in the background there too.
