Potez Loss Murmansk

Hi, I am looking for any info regarding the loss of a Potez 63(probably a 63.11) in the Murmansk area.

An odd place for one of these I know.

Thank you.

Probably not Romanian around Murmansk.

If this is based on a claim, I'd consider Pe 2.

Actually based on an artifact, a rudder. Reputedly found around Titovka (not Titowka)

I have read the Luftwaffe used them in a 'liason' capacity.

Brian, taitbb

Here is a good website for wrecked Russian, Allied and Axis aircraft in Norway and Finland including the border area with Russia:

...It may be a long shot but it may just help

Re: Potez Loss Murmansk

Unfortunately no date or anything, just an approximate location and type based on physical evidence, not documentation.

No Luftwaffe Potez 63 is recorded lost so far away from Germany.
