Photo 01: Seen at Caen-Carpiquet loaded with an SC 250 bomb, this Bf 109F-4/B, 'White 2', WNr. 8352 of 10.(Jabo)/JG26, was flown by Fw. Otto Gortz during a Jabo mission to the Bournemouth area on the evening of 6June 1942. During the attack, this aircraft was shot down by anti aircraft fire and Fw. Gortz was killed. Note that on the bomb silhouette on the rear fuselage, sprayed highlights have been added in an attempt to accentuate its shape.

Remarks: KIA 6 June, 1942 after being hit by British AA fire in the Bournemouth raid. He crashed into the Channel on the return flight. Note: I have seen this same AC referred to as 'Bf 109F-4/B', which is probably correct since he was in a Jabo Staffel. Alternate spelling: Gortz.
