It looks like it's coded 6N+KJ in the photo, too (and W.Nr. 7074).

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

I did ask the seller for better scans but he never replied so we'll have to do with this one:
a Fw 190, Ju 88 ??+AR and a photo of a pile of wrecks:

Re: eBAy: Captured german planes

For Tom W.─

Regarding the Hs 129 + Z Q in 59-586, I have just come to the same conclusion
as yourself based on the Pegg title on the Hs 129. Boy, the data in this Werknummer
range are thin on the ground!

Hi Rabe

A little confused with the Hs129 W/Nr batch and the part Stkz ??+ZQ. Can you please elaborate. Thanks
Tom

Ju88G-1 W.Nr. 712283 (3C+AR) of III./NJG4 (7. Staffel) crashed two kilometres N/NNW of Wesel at approx. 23.55 hrs on the night of 24-25 March 1945 during a Nachtschlacht mission against the Allied bridgehead over the Rhine.


FF: Lt. Mittendorf OR von Mylius (not a Staffelkapitän)
Bf: Uffz. Erich Stifter
Bm: Gefr. Johann Blever
Bs: Ogefr. Werner Lefkes + (b. 07/09/1924 in Viersen, buried in unknown grave at the Kriegsgräberstätte in Wesel-Diersfordt (D))

By all accounts, one man died in the crash, two wounded men were shot, and one man was taken prisoner. Ogefr. Lefkes is the only confirmed death so far, but two bodies of the crew are visible in photos taken the day after the crash, and other photos from a later time show the body of the pilot after recovery from the cockpit (which was apparently cut open to get the body out).

Cheers

Rod

Thanks as ever, RudiS, for your haul.

A small precision: what is called a Bf 109 is actually the starboard engine fo a destroyed He 111 H.

Cheers
Marc
