Re: Willi Reschke

Sad to read that Willi passed away. R.I.P.
Luckely that he had the chance to publish the story about JG 301/302, the unit in which he flew duing WW2.

Re: Willi Reschke

I met Willi back in 1995, I was fortunate to have stayed with a bunch of Luftwaffe veterans at a hotel in Cambridge during that years "Flying Legends" at Duxford. A really nice guy indeed. RIP Willi!

Re: Willi Reschke

Really sad news.
He was the first flying ace that I talked to personally.

His book Jagdgeschwader Jg 301/302 'Wilde Sau' is highly recommendable !

Möge er in Frieden ruhen !

Re: Willi Reschke

I wish I was there but unfortunately not Michael. I was on vacation.
Here are at least some pics from our 3 meetings. Unforgettable moments.
