There are no crashes reported near Neustadt (Nové Město na Moravě) in spring 1945.

The only losses in that area were two He 111 from a not reported unit on a supply flight to Breslau in the night 23./24.04.45.

He 111 units in April 1945 in that area were Stab, I. and III./KG 4 at Königgrätz (Hradec Kralove) and Transgruppe Herzog at Hohenmauth (Vysoke Myto). But Neustadt is not on their way to Breslau, it's some 50km in opposite direction.

Gerhard, many thanks for your help. Are the aircraft serial numbers known? According to preserved fragments - windows and production labels it is definitely Heinkel. So one of them. (Labels from the Jumo 211 Pump Engine and Direction Trim Control.)

Gerhard, thank you for your help. I will search further, try BaMa Freiburg or a book of deceased. Perhaps I can find out on this case my friend from the museum works, but so far it has not moved. What is certain is that it was Heinkel, not Junkers, as many witnesses have so far mistakenly thought.

Rémi- The date of the accident is also correct - confirmed by a chronicler and also witnesses.
