please Help! a JU 88 in Normandy
Wed Feb 25 22:27:32 2004
80.9.118.118

A friend found the remainders of a JU 88 near Carentan, in Normandy. It seems that witnesses have seen this plane crushed on June 17, 1944. The two pilots would have died after having jumped in parachute. With the German cemetery of La Cambe, these two pilots could be Anton MULLER and Karl THIEBERT. Someone knows these pilots? What was there units ?
If that can help for the exactly type of JU88 , the number of the two engines is the JFR 1021304170
Sorry for my English
Thanks
Fred

Make / model no?...........

I wonder if the 91 might indicate the make or model of aircraft and the other digits a part number or possibly last part of a WNr?

Uff Schlager JG 26
Fri Jul 30, 2004 08:33
84.64.63.26

It may be of interest that I recently recovered Uffz Schlager's 109 F (W Nr 8350) in Northern France. Schlager was involved in the combat when Bader was lost on 9 August 1941.
The full story appears in the next edition of "After the Battle" out early August in which there are some interesting photos relating to JG 26 and Galland's "bunker" at Audembert, La Colombier. The story is also in either this or next weekend's "Mail on Sunday".
May be of interest to some who watch this board!
Andy Saunders.

Help to traduce a piece of Fw 190
Wed Aug 11, 2004 23:49
193.249.228.138

Hello,
a friend of me have found a Fw 190 in the south of Lisieux in Normandy, but impossible to find a number, the day of the crash...
all we have it's maybe a number on the plane which could be a "10 red" or "8 red"...? The Fw 190 is a Fw190 A8 and must be crash during the summer 1944.
We have a piece of the cockpit, maybe a radio, and we can read :
"Achtung ! Gefchaltet für Geratesat FU?Z
VK 16 Za"
If someone can help me....
Thanks

172.207.195.95

if the number of the plane is 10 red or 8 red, it can be a plane from the 2/JG54 . the 2 staffel used the red more than the black color .the 27 july the "8 red "of 2/JG54 was shoot down in the S/E of Caen . flying by Uffz egon zemke (wounded).
but others gruppe of 190(4/JG 1, 2/SKG 10 , St./JG 3) used the red color .
it's very hard and quite impossible to find the identity of this plane only with your pieces .

the piece that you have is probably a part of the radio Fug 16Z

82.255.70.197


yes i'm french

quick translation:


""A Fw190 is in the lac of Grand-Lieu near the city of Nantes.
An association should have take it out of the water but the representative of the french government in this land refuse to authorize this action,although the support of germans.
The pilot is still in the plane,and in France it is considered as a burial...and the burials can't be moved.
But you know in France all administrative stuff takes years and years to be concluded,so we hate to wait for the final decision ""

FW 190 in a lake
Sun Dec 12, 2004 18:56
81.50.183.141


Hello,

I do know this sad story of the aircraft crashed in the "lac de Grand Lieu" very close to Nantes, with - may be - the body of the pilot inside. The "Préfet" (a sort of governor of the area : "Région" or "Département") doesn't want this aircraft and its pilot were dug out of the mud (the lake is, in fact, a very large marsh), in spite of all the demands, and though the french ministry of defense is OK ! position of the Préfet (newspaper "La Nouvelle République" dated 15 October 2002) : "We can wonder what is the interest of such a thing in a world which must solve other problems ..."

Concerning the pilot buried in the mud of the "Lac de Grandlieu": he would be (it's the main hypothesis) Lt. Rudolf WELPRECHT, from 10./JG 2, based Vannes-Meucon, shot down 4th July 1943.

It's a very sad story : for 2 or 3 years the family (the brother) of Lt. WELPRECHT is waiting for a happy solution ... but it's long coming and I'm very pessimist !

Apologies for my poor english

Best regards

Pierre
PS: Jerry, I'll contact you nextly concerning an other subject (Harrowbeer) ... if you want !

Hi Pierre,
Thankyou for the story, It is indeed even more sad now I know all the details.
Perhaps the more publicity this gets it might help the brother of the pilot.
Maybe one of the aircraft magazines or a newspaper should take up the story.
If you wish to contact me about harrowbeer please do , my mail is :-

I will be putting a news report about it in Classic Wings magazine, but that won't be out until Feb.05 and doesn't have a big readership in Europe, being that it is in English.
I will be forwarding it to a friend in Germany who has connections with the Flugzeug Classic mag as well.

Hi,
Hope something comes of it and a change of mind is made, With enough talking and widespread knowledge of the events, it might just change.
Good job you have contacts.

Diplomatic pressure from Germany (now a friend) could...

...prove very effective. German people are very eager to get the remains of their fallen soldiers. The "Kriegsgräberfürsorge" (it's on the Net) certainly would be very helpful.
