It must be a G, not a K. The jacking hole is in the "usual" position, while the K version had it farther forward and a little bit higher.

That G-6/R6, SJ+VT.
Look under fuselage. Not France and not JG3, as far I know. Most probably a Night Fighter ...
And check JG300 by JYL to get the equivalent ...

This one too - which is not SJ+VT or "they" put a tank under belly ...
Anyway, it has a flamedamper over exhaust, obviously a night fighter. Same comment than above.

Thanks for your lead, Franck. Yup, as for the location, we have one clue for Germany: Ju 88 W.Nr. 1530 V43 "RF+IQ" was one of the Ju 188 A testbeds at E-Stelle Rechlin in 1943. Some other photos were taken there, maybe also the 109's...

Am off for my JYL

Cheers
Marc

The Ju 188 V43 was used by Rechlin for endurance testing of the BMW 801 and served as a travel aircraft in Rechlin. This 188 flew on all fronts, so the photos could have been taken anywhere.

Again, note the whistle on first exhaust pipe !
BTW if you really need a night fighter unit in France, 1944, with such machines then I./JG301 was based at St. Dizier and Epinoy from 12/6/1944 to 26/8/1944.

Thanks Peter for this cautionary remark. Much appreciated.

Franck, thanks again. No need for me to have those photos in France.

As a possible further development, we have also a Bf 109 G-12 with partial STKz "SV+??" photographed with Uffz. Giese, 1./JG 107, based at Pau during Summer 1944 published in Prien and Rodeike 1995, p. 143.

Cheers
Marc

Hello,
The G-12 had the partial StKz "SJ+??" ...
Anyway when I wrote "You" I meant "You all" not only Marc.
Next, amazingly Stab JG301 was based at .... Rechlin ! Funny isn't it ? Yet, we don't know when the said Wolfgang died.
Last - talking about further and/or possible development(s) - the picture published by JYL in Vol 1, page 171 show us a former JG54 machine, with the famous FuBi 2 under fuselage - and the whistle - taken at Jüterbog (Wadlager) in June 1944. The caption says III./JG54 did loan its machines to II./JG302 till early 1944.
II./JG302 didn't have it's own machine and shared those used by I./JG11 and III./JG54. Disbanded in June 1944, all crews being transfered to III./JG300 ...
Here we are. Since we don't know when the pic has been taken ...


Regards,
Franck.
