He 219 V23 DV+DI found at Hörsching?

Hello,

Can anybody confirm that He 219 V23 DV+DI was found at Hörsching at the end of the war? This is the aircraft used for ejection seat trials at Rechlin.

Regards,
Roger Gaemperle

Hello Ed,

That's exactly the one I was looking for! I wasn't sure which He 219 was found at Hoersching, I only knew that it didn't have any antennas on its nose like V23. But V17 is the correct one. Thank you very much.

Kind regards
Roger

Re: He 219 V23 DV+DI found at Hörsching?

Hallo, photo from Horsching is great!
Are you sure that prototyp He-219V23 had "stamm" DV+DI??
DV+DI (190113) and DV+DL (190116) were prototyps for ejection seat trials (source: He-219 Flugzeug Profile 10)

This maschine on a few photograph marked V23 and DV+D_ (last letter unread) was found after war on Cheb (Eger) factory airfield (Czech)between wrack of other three He-219s (WNr. (190)222, (190)179 and (190)188.

Any other informations??

Hello

He219A-0 (Werkenr. 190113, DV+DI) was given Versuchsnummer V-17 and this nightfighter was the second He219 used as testbed for the ejection seat.

He219A-0 (Werkenr. 190116, DV+DL) was never used as testbed and was flown by the I./NJG 1 and then II./NJG 1. The last unit lost this aircraft on 19th May 1944.

He219A-0 (Werkenr. 190121, DV+DQ) was initially used as Versuchsmuster V-32 but since end August 1944 used for the testprogram of Versuchsmuster V-23.

Best regards, Marcel

Re: He 219 V23 DV+DI found at Hörsching?

Dear barkas,
I have some conflicting information regarding the Uhu’s found at Eger/Cheb: in my list the He 219 found there were the following:

Werkenr. 190121 (DV+DQ, A-0)
Werkenr. 190223 (BE+JU, A-0)
Werkenr. 310188 (unknown, A-7)
Werkenr. 190129 (GU+BE, A-0) (uncertain if this A/C was found at Eger/Cheb)

I have Werkenr. 190222 listed as crashed on 15/6 ´44 at Judenatt (40km northwest of Schwechat).

Werkenr. 190179 was found at Lechfeld in May ´45 together with 190104 and 190176.

Werkenr. 190188 was shot down 4/6 ´44 by Mosquito (219 Sqn RAF) north of Wilhelminadorp (in the Netherlands).


Dear Marcel,
Can you confirm that Werkenr. 190113 was given Versuchsnummer V-17?
I have 190113 listed as V19 for ejection seat tests, and Werkenr. 190060 as V17 (testbed for BMW003 jet engine, and later DB603AA).

Best regards,
Ingemar C.

Hello

My apologies for the error that 190113 had V-17, this was 190060 indeed. However, 190113 certainly did not get V-19 because this Versuchsnummer was reserved for a He219 with a pressurized cabin. In June 1944 another He219 was assigned for the V-19 testprogram but it was cancelled. In a list of Versuchsmuster from January 1945, V-19 is no longer referred to.

About the He219's found at Eger/Cheb: it is not definitely clear whether the numbers 188, 223 etc. were (abbreviated) Werkenummer or works internal numbers. He219 (310188) was found at Westerland/Sylt, whereas 190188 crashed near Wilhelminadorp/Netherlands as you have written correctly.

He219 (190222) did not crash at Judenatt but Judenau

Best regards, Marcel

REF post No.7

Hi,
I came across this guy while looking into the Ju.390v-2 stories his flight log is supposed to document flights of this aircraft at Riechlin (sorry spelling wrong). I posted all that stuff on LEMB believe its all still there.
regards
