The Luftwaffe Collection

Post by K4KittyCrew »

If any member has some unique images of Luftwaffe aircraft, feel free to post them here, listing all sources, please.
There are a lot of colour images in this collection.
I'm amazed at how many colour schemes were on ME109's .......... Also, note the rear gun on the He111 ( rear photo ) there two type of styles noted.

Interesting pics!

U5+HA I think is something with 'H' in it, scrubbed out, and 'USA' overpainted. That looks like an American truck in the foreground?

Richard, you are of course on the ball ............ sure your not a forensic detective?
I particually like the 'HE111 'touching the waters edge' .................. a real 'spur of the moment' photo.
Cheers,
John

Hi John - the He111 photo is extraordinary, and very sobering - the port tip looks bent, presumably it ended tragically?

Cheers,

Richard

A rare insight to an Messerschmidt Bf 110 in flight. The second image show more instruments from inside the aircraft.
