As far as we have found there were no claims made on 27th April by the air forces based in Italy. To me a prime candidate is on 26th April
66th FS/57th FG 2/Lt Roland E.Lee P-47D Bf 109 F7852 1310

Re: Combat Claims

Hello,

The P-47s from 526th FS, 86th FG, based at Tantonville, France, operated against targets in southern Germany.

On 27 April, they claimed two enemy aircraft (I neither have the type nor the place). These were claimed by 1st Lt Roy W. Brown Jr. and 1st Lt Paul Moody.

Best wishes/Håkan

Re: Combat Claims

Further to Håkan's statement, Frank Olynyk lists these claims between 15.13 - 15.15H at a place called Y-2646, which I have no idea where that was.
Both aircraft are listed as Fw 190.

Furthermore, four Fw 190 are listed as claimed damaged, one each by Brown, Lt Camp, 1/Lt Theodore E. Delo and F.O. Virgil R. Thornton.

Cheers
Stig

Re: Combat Claims

Dear Contributors,
many thx for your replies which I hardly had expected.
Now I am able to work with your info and look for witnesses and debris.
It will take a while until I will have a useful overview about the days 26 and 27 Apr. 1945.
The last days of war have been quite disastrous for all the Luftwaffe organisation.
Eberhard Heiser was from Frankfurt but found his grave in Steinach am Brenner.
Regards
ginamod

If the reference is to the Nord de Guerre grid, then wY2646 is 5 or 6 km NW of Landsberg-am-Lech in Bavaria. Nowhere near the Brenner Pass., however.

On the North Italy Grid, rY2646 is 63 km north of Klagenfurt (and 200 km east of Steinach.
