Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Hi there Gang,

A new challenge for yet another rainy Sunday: thanks to Peter, over on LEMB, we have a very nice shot of what I interpret as a WNF built Bf 109 G-14 "W-0+66" flown by 101 Vadaszezred in late 1944 or early 1945:

Note the three first digits of the W.Nr. at the usual WNF position, at the base of the fin. Though blurred I read 512. A confirmation as well the location of this landing mishap would be much appreciated!

Cheers
Marc

Bonjour Marc,

I don't like the way Flickr did change the presentation of your page.
They did the same with Kemon01 too; I suppose it's a Global change and a complete nonsense even for everybody's page.
Comments aren't accessible except if opening the pictures one by one ...

We need to think to reopen the Yola account maybe - or something like that - and to put the document I kept with ALL thumbnails and links; but still no access to comments ... After 2 of June?

Cheers, Franck.

Salut Franck,

I only fleetingly could assess the damaged one. Will be back more thoroughly by tomorrow.

Cheers
Marc

Marc,

Do you have a link for just the G-10's? I'm looking for III./JG 27 mounts in particular.

Hallo Oberst,

Scroll down to page 3 of sets, and there you have them, sorted out by producers.... No time yet to upload them by unit; this will be a future development.

Cheers
Marc

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

Hi Gang,

Thanks to Peter over on LEMB, I uploaded some new pics from late war Bf 109's...

http://www.flickr.com/photos/28092068@N03/9007237094/
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2809206...n/photostream/

Among them are those two pics of a Bf 109 G-6 which camouflage is typical for Mtt-built Planes in the 163 xxx - 166 xxx W.Nr. range. Given the tactical marking type and the white Süd Front band, I would bet on an 2./NAGr. plane shot down somewhere in Italy, Spring 1944. I would much appreciate having all possible details on this particular plane;-))

Thanks in advance
Marc

Marc,

That plane got 20mm gondolae under wings; I doubt it was from one NAGr. something!! Don't you?

... Later: Given the very tight spiral on spinner I think about one JG 77 machine. Just a guess, nothing serious!!

Cheers, Franck.

Ah Franck,

The bigger the detail is, the less I see it... Thanks for your thorough look;-))

Much appreciated!

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

A great set of 1944 - 1945 WNF factory pics has just been found by Peter, over on LEMB. Among them is this great sight of a Bf 109 G-10 being engine tested in deep snow, Winter 1944 - 1945...
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2809206...in/photostream

As for the others, taken between April and August 1944, I'm still looking for the W.Nr's of Bf 109 G-6 "PN+IY",

Bf 109 G-6 "PR+QS"
