Any info on Fw 190A-8, W.Nr. 730975?

I just purchased a series of three original photos depicting Fw 190A-8, W.Nr. 730975. However, I have no loss info on this particular aircraft.

The photos show no unit markings, or any other symbols/emblems (the series must have been taken shortly after the aircraft left the production line).

Any info on this bird would be appreciated.

According to my lists, most of the Ago built FW 190A-8's around this W.Nr. were distributed to J.G.54 and J.G.1 during May/june 1944. Unfortunately, I have no info at all about 730975. The aircraft in this series were delivered from Ago from April 1944 and went on beyond November 1944.

Hello Denes,

Fw 190A-8 W.Nr. 730975 spend the summer of 1944 with the Rheinmetall company located at Faßberg for trials with the BV 246.

Thanks, Merlin, for the details. That would explain why only civilian persons are around the airplane and no unit markings can be seen.
