Info on found 109 F2 wreck and pilot.

Hello,

I have come across some items from a 109 wreck. The pilots info is below. Any pics from the unit, pilot, or plane would be greatly appreciated.

Bf109 F2 6721 Ofw. Georg Mayr of 4./JG.52 (S.U.) Participated in combat operations over England in 1941, and the Soviet-German front in 1941. Georg had 2 kills (Spitfires over England) First victory was 5 km E of Deal on 7th of May 1941. A second Spitfire N of Dover on the 19th of May 1941. He was then transferred to the eastern front. August 11, 1941 Bf 109 F-2 W.Nr. 6721 "Weisse/White 5" was hit by fire from the ground from positions of Soviet troops. The plane fell in the northern part of Minyushi (south-west of the city of Novgorod, Russia) and died.

I want to find more info on the pilot, camo patterns, pics, and plane. Do any of you have resources on finding such info? Thanks in advance.

I appreciate your help guys. What would have been a common paint scheme for them? Man I wish I could find some pics of him or his plane.

Hi Sixfour619
That's a nice selection of relics you have there, I managed to get some fuselage skinning wiring and interestingly a home made horse that was cut out of some metal that is similar to a coke can, I wonder if the horse may of had some relevance to Georg Mayr or Jg52 perhaps or maybe just a mascot, this was also found in the wreckage.
Below are photos of the radio data plate showing Me109 F2 the aircraft type also an electrical plug from the armament.

I'm the same as you in relation to the information sourced so far, as I only acquired these and some other nice relics a few weeks back.

I've researched the same info shown so far on this thread, bar an Eastern front combat that Georg Mayr was involved with attacking Russian airfields.
Hopefully you can piece together and read ok as not to great at posting images as yet.

Like you I would like if possible of images of the Pilot and and aircraft.

Hopefully something will come up in the near future.
Photos to follow
