Once operated by I./JG1, this Bf 109E-4/B was later transferred to an Erganzungsgruppe, possibly Erg. Gr. JG54, at Cazaux, on the west coast of France, where it flew with a bomb rack. Fighter training units based in this area frequently practised bombing in the Gironde Estuary where there was an old wreck which served as a target. On this aircraft, the emblem of the former unit has been retained on the fuselage but, except for the lower cowling, the earlier yellow nose has been repainted Green 71.
