Messerschmitt Bf 109E7/Trop 2./JG 27 (Black 8+) Franz Elles Libya 1941

Hi Matthew,
This is an Urban Legend! Schoer did fly ‘Schwarze 8’ only two times… Written on his flight log. Normal pilot was Fw. Franz Elles.
Else: It’s not 8./JG27 but 2./JG 27 so far.
So, I change all the texts, now, if you want, you can add a note explaining what I said above; remove the pilot’s picture and The text concerning Schoer… It’s up to you.
