Bf 109 of IV./JG 27 Bodenplatte

The following question was posted on the old side, I thought I would answer it here;

Angelos Mansolas
IV/JG 27 marking Bodenplatte

62.38.209.108

Hi all!

Does anyone know whether IV/JG 27 carried a IV Gruppe marking on the fuselages of their 109s during December 1944 and Operation Bodenplatte? I cannot find a single photo showing a IV/JG 27 aircraft during that period.

Hi Angelos, RAF Intelligence records show that Hptm. Heinz Dudeck flew a Bf 109G-10, WNr. 490644 which carried the IV. Gruppe marking (~)

I appreciate your answer John.
Do you also happen to know whether it was the simple wavy line (~) or of the kind that IV/JG 53 carried at the time?
(You know, the one that, back in 1940-41, used to denote the III Gruppe)

IV. Gruppe

I am not sure, but I would assume it was the same as the (~) marking of IV./JG 53 in January 1945 (see pictures of Uffz. Maxis a/c in the Bodenplatte book).

Yes, i know Maxis' aircraft and that was exactly what i meant too. I remember seeing a photo of a IV/JG 27 aircraft somewhere and if my memory serves me well, it was the very same symbol, but i cannot recall which that book was or where i had seen it.

Thanks again
Regards

Angelos

IV./JG 27

There is one in Dr. Prien's book on III. and IV./JG 27, page 423.
