Messerschmitt Bf 109 D-1 11./(N)JG2 Yellow (N+11) Norway 1940

Photo 01: Night fighting with Bf109s was not the invention of Hajo Herrmann and JG300 in 1943. One early Bf 109 night fighting unit was IV.(N)/JG2 which was established in February 1940 and had its origins in the Ar68-equipped 10.(N)/JG 131. Its component Staffeln assumed responsibility for the defence of the German Bight coastline under the operational command of the Stab/JG1. Maj. Albert Blumensaat was Gruppenkommandeur of IV.(N)/ JG2 from February to June 1940 when the unit was incorporated into NJG 1. He was previously Staffelkapitän of 10.(N) /JG2 prior to being appointed Gkr. He was replaced in this command by Oblt. Erwin Bacsila who later achieved a degree of notoriety with Sturmstaffel 1. The Staffelkapitän of 11.(N)/ JG2 was a certain Johannes Steinhoff while the StaKa of 12(N)./JG2 was Oblt. Hans Baer. 'N+7' above was probably the a/c of Ofw. Hermann Förster of 11.(N)/JG2 who claimed his first victory on 22 Feb 1940 (a Wellington -note the two tail kill markings). His second victory on 26 April 1940 was a 49 Sq Hampden shot down on a mine-laying sortie near Hörnum. On 23 April 1940 12. and 11.(N)/JG2 Bf109D fighters had moved from Jever via Aalborg to Trondheim (Norway) to support other fighter units in that theatre. 11.(N)/JG2 Bf109 D machines usually display the unit's Eulenwappen (owl emblem) on the forward fuselage just above the exhaust as here.

Photo 01: This photograph of Bf 109D-1s of 11.(Nacht)/JG2 was taken shortly after the German invasion of Oslo-Fornebu, Norway in April 1940, and shows sailors of the Kriegsmarine with one of the Staffel's aircraft at Oslo-Fornebu.

Messerschmitt Bf 109D1 11.(N)/JG2 black (N+4) Oslo-Fornebu, Norway 1940

Photo 01: Although the Bf-109D-1 was originally delivered in a factory finish of 70/71/65 with a low demarcation line which ran along the lower fuselage, this defensive scheme was later changed to one better suited to conceal the aircraft while in the air. The demarcation line between the upper and undersurface colors was therefore raised so that most of the fuselage sides were in 65, and the green 70 on the uppersurfaces was replaced by grey 02. These aircraft, some clearly showing spinners finished in 70 while others are 65, belonged to 11.(Nacht)/JG2 and were probably photographed at Oslo-Fornebu or Trondheirn-Vaernes in the late spring or early summer of 1940. In June 1940, when NJG1 was formed under Hptm. Wolfgang Falck, IV.(N)/JG2 was redesignated II./NJG1.

Messerschmitt Bf 109D 4(N)./JG2 (BN+10) Oslo-Fornebu, Norway 1940

Profile 00: Messerschmitt Bf 109D-1 'Black 10+N' of 11.(Nacht)/ JG2, Oslo-Fornebu, Norway, 1940 This machine had been recently repainted in 70/02/65 and was therefore quite clean with minimal weathering and exhaust staining. Note the modified exhaust stubs and that, to prevent the pilot's night vision being affected by exhaust glare during night operations, an anti-glare shield has been fitted over the port and starboard exhaust outlets. The spinner on this aircraft was 70 overall.
