Radener's FW -190 A8 7/JG26 Brown '2' Picture

A friend of mine is looking for a picture of Waldi Radener's Fw-190 A-8. He flew Brown 4 and there is a picture of that, but he also flew Brown 2 which had a very short career before crashing.

He asks

"Anyone has a picture or profile of the FW190A8, 'Brown 2', flown by Oblt. Waldemar Radener, Staffelkapitan of 7/JG26, between 13 May and 15 June 1944? This was Werke Nr. 730934, and not the 'Brown 4', Wk Nr. 340001 shown in the well know formation photograph.
'Waldi's' FW190A7, 'Brown 4' crashed on landing on 12 May and was sent away for repair, eventually being captured by the Allies. He then flew 'Brown 2', from which he bailed out following combat with P51's of 339th FG on 15 May. He was injured, and didn't return to the Geschwader for some weeks, due to catching his parachute on the aircraft, and then having a heavy landing. :



Again, any help would be appreciated!

Re: Radener's FW -190 A8 7/JG26 Brown '2' Picture

Hi

This is not the answer you want, but it may be helpful: there is a well known shot of Brown 4 and also a partial shot of Brown 5 on page 255 and 233 respectively in Don Caldwell's excellent The JG 26 War Diary 1943-1945. The two aircraft seem to be more of less identical. There are also a number of profiles of each about the web.

I guess you probably know all of this, but just in case you didn't...............

Regards

Chris
