factory photos vs. "in action" photos
Tue May 30 13:39:01 2000


I have often wondered why so few books have production line photoghraps of German aircraft instead of often poor quality action pics. I doubt that is due to availability
(at least there exist a number of factory photos of tanks as seen e.g. in Spielberger´s series). IMHO the best aircraft photoghraps I have ever seen are old American
factory photos (which are, for some reason, much better in clarity than modern b/w photos). Why all this emphasis on action photos (modeller totalitarianism?)?

Hei!

Why limit yourself to published material? Start your own research, check archives and visit all kind of aviation related happening and you may find fine factory photos
showing nothing but technical stuff.

As for Finland. Helsinki-Vantaa museum has a lot of original a/c manuals in their library. From entrance some 20 m forward and door to left. Start going through
shelves like you were in normal library. They make even photocopies for you (quite expensive). They also host the "ilmailukirjallisuuspäivät". I've bought factory photos
of Fokker CX during manufacture from there (it's usually Eino Riihiranta and Ossi Anttonen who have the photos for sale).

Try Archiv Hafner (link above on the page). He sells a lot of technical manual stuff. Where else can you find a 500 page book of Heinkel 50? Certainly no historical nor
colors&markings stuff there.

Keski-Suomen Ilmailumuseo has a good library too. The museum manager Hannu Valtonen might be able to help you contacting for example Bunderarchive photo
collections. The museum has also the old archive of Valtion Lentokonetehdas from Santahamina period IIRC (unorganized last I heard).

Just not make the "I want only technical stuff" -approach, please. Lots of people -especially here- will find it offensive and you may end up with no responses. If you
accept the truth that most people *are* interested in color, markings and history you may be able to pick the material you are interested in. That's what the other
people do too, for example those interested only in the history part like dates, units etc.

Take care,

Kari

Terve! Actually I have been to the Tikkakoski museum and everytime I go there I am in heaven! However, as I live quite far from Helsinki I have no realistic chances of
visits to the Vantaa museum. Hafner does sell interesting stuff but his prices are far beyond my pocket and as I don´t speak German I have some reluctance spending
my limited funds for stuff I cannot read.
I may have sounded a rough but let me explain: of the dozen or so aircraft enthusiasts I know personally, less than half are modellers and therefore most interested in
markings etc. The rest are like me, more interested in contstruction details, handling characteristics. And perhaps I may ask what was the WW Two more interested
in, spinner colour pattern or stalling characteristics of his kite?

Photo of Sidney Cotton's Electra
Sun Sep 17 13:21:20 2000


Hi!

If anyone is interested there is a very good quality photo of Sidney Cotton's Electra taken at Helsinki/Malmi, Finland in the magazine "Suomen ilmailuhistoriallinen lehti".
There are also very good text (researched too, at PRO etc.) and b/w side profiles. Englsih summary should be available on request. The front page of the issue 2/2000
(which includes the article) can be seen at this page: http://www.jiop.fi/ksimuseo/Sil2_00.jpg

The Tikkakoski museum homepage has also contact info for the magazine. The home at: http://www.jiop.fi/ksimuseo/index.html

Cheers,

Kari

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6/Y - 5 color photos

(Unfortunately) True stories from Finland


Shows 2 postwar scrap yard pile photos, possibly including Ju 88s and Do 17s.

Answers to the "Frequently Asked Questions", by museum staff - FAQ's plus answers of interest include:

We have been asked whether there has been a Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10 in Finland?

Is there any extra Bf 109 for sale or trade?

We've been asked "Why was the Bf 109 so prone to swing on take-off?". The document is written in Finnish and in English (Nov 10th 1999)

We've been asked "Were the Bf 109 G-10s factory new or produced by repairing from old aircraft?". The document is written in Finnish and in English (Nov 10th 1999)

We've been asked about different versions of Messerschmitt Bf 109. So we started "MODELLER'S SPECIAL: Messerschmitt Bf 109 Evolution" series....

We've heard rumours that there is an another Bf 109 in the museum, is it true and what is its story?

Northern exotic: What is Kaltstart and how is it done?

Driving instructions, contact information, open times

The museum is located in Jyväskylä, Finland, 276 KM north of Helsinki. Directions, visiting hours, and contact information are given.

T. C. Kenny has created a beautiful website entitled "The Flightline" WW II Aviation Archive. A number of museum photos are presented which should be of interest. The site address is:

http://www.kotfsc.com/aircraft/main.htm

Aircraft of Luftwaffe interest are covered in the following sections. Some photo labelling is incorrect, so be cautious. I've done the best I can to identify the aircraft as well as the museums some of the photos were taken at, but I certainly could be wrong in some of these.

Fighter Aircraft

The main page to this section has a beautiful color photo of two yellow nose Bf 109's in flying formation. Each aircraft covered has generally a lead color photo, technical specifications, background information, a list of variants, and a color profile. The aircraft covered are:

Air battle of December 14, 1944
Sun Jun 24 19:27:37 2001


On December 14, 1944 Soviet naval shturmoviks and bombers conducted an anti-shipping strike off the coast of Libava/Libau, involving the shturmoviks of the 47 naval ShAP, which claimed 6 transports sunk and 2 damaged. They were intercepted by a large number of FW-190s and very severly handled, losing 9 aircraft shot down, and a couple more badly damaged. The first Il-2 to go was shot down at 14:12 hours, 8-10 km north of Libava, and fell into the sea about 2 km off shore. The pilot was Colonel Nelson Stepanyan, twice Hero of the Soviet Union. Can anyone identify the Luftwaffe unit involved, or even better the pilot claiming the victory?

Servus George!

According www.ww2.dk (Michael Holm's The Luftwaffe-homepage) II/JG54 was at the time at Libau (Liepaja) and I/JG54 at Schrunden (Skrunda). Looking at map (a paper one on my desk) it's more likely that II/JG54 was involved. Skrunda is some 65 km (40 miles) inland East of Liepaja.

II/JG54´was the fighter component of the Commando Kuhlmey which operated in Finland Summer 1944. And because of that I suggest that you contact Mr. Hannu Valtonen, the director of the Tikkakoski aviation museum. He has written a researched book of Kdo Kuhlmey and IIRC interviewed several II/JG54 pilots. He might have some info for you. For initial contact please do use the museum fax +358 14 375 3620 (tel +358 14 375 2125, +358 14 375 3162).

BTW Did Stepanyan fly his colorfully decorated Il-2 on this mission? The one with "oil painting"-lookalikes on both sides of fuselage. Or do I remember wrong? I always assumed that that was a post-war paintjob.

Regards,
Kari

Many thanks for the further information. I presume that Stepanyan would have flown his "artistic" Il-2 on the mission. Since there is a photograph of Stepanyan standing by the aircraft, it must have been painted prior to December 1944, and used on operations. I would guess at least by the summer of 1944 when the regiment redeployed to the Baltic from the Black Sea. Those dramatic markings might have been one reason why Stepanyan's Il-2 was targeted as the first to be shot down, easily identified to foe as well as friend as an important leader.

Drop Tank Stencilling
Tue May 21 19:51:50 2002

Hi;
Need info on all stencils that MAY appear on a fighter drop tank in 1944-45. I know the "keine bombe!" and I remember something about a 20RM reward for returning a tank, but I need any and all markings or text that would generally appear on a drop tank.

Thanks!

Paul

Drop tank stenciling

Try this finnish site. At least one colour pic on a drop tank. Possibly one of the finnish guys can help you with more pic's.

http://www.byterapers.com/~grendel/p...001/index.html

(I took a look at this site which has numerous photos from the Tikkakoski Finnish Air Force Museum. While the major emphasis is on photos of a Blenheim tucked away in a hangar, there are also photos of drop tanks - 1 photo identifying them as being for Me 109's - and a photo of an Me 109E wing, all stored away from the regular museum exhibits. There are also 21 photos of the museum's displayed Me 109 G-6. All of these are in color and can be enlarged for greater definition.

Regards,
Richard)

Thanks to all who responded to my first post. What I am now looking for is a specific phrase stencilled on drop tanks. I believe it was offering a reward for turning in the drop tank. It goes something like this:

Can anyone fill in the blanks please?

Bf109 Repair Depots

62.174.101.18

How many ‘frontreparaturbetrieb’ (Repair Depots) were entrusted repairing combat damaged or crashed Bf109?

I know ERLA stablished one very important with thousands of labourers in Antwerpen.
There was any other facility for the Bf109?


Thanks
Fran
