Profile 00: Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 flown by Oblt. Joachim Muncheberg, Staffelkapitan of 7.f JG26, 'White 1' the Bf 109E-4 of Oblt. Joachim Muncheberg, Staffelkapitan of 7./JG26 as it is believed to have appeared, circa 24 August. As was usual with the aircraft of III./JG26, the Balkenkreuz, aircraft number and Gruppe symbol were of smaller proportions than usual and the 65 fuselage sides lacked mottling although some was carried on the fin, probably in 02. Upper camouflage colors were 02/71 and a white pennant was carried on the antenna mast. The entire engine cowling was roughly painted yellow back to the base of the windscreen, leaving the white background to the 7.Staffel heart emblem with an irregular white border. The rudder was yellow with a small section left in the original 65 on which were painted Muncheberg's fourteen Abschuss bars in red. This profile is based on a poor quality photograph, regrettably not suitable for publication, which also shows the very similar Bf 109E-1, 'White 2', of 7./JG26. A photograph of 'White 2', taken after Uffz. Karl-Heinz Bock forced landed at Rye on 17 September, shows the similarity in the finish.

This photograph is believed to have been taken on or shortly after 16 February 1941 when 7/JG26 escorted Ju-87s of Stukageschwader 2 to Malta and Muncheberg shot down a Hurricane, the pilot of which was seriously wounded.

Here, Oblt. Joachim Muncheberg, left, greets Lt. Johannes Naumann of 9./JG26 who, at the time of this photograph, taken shortly before the 7. Staffel moved to Sicily, had two victories but would later be awarded the Ritterkreuz.

Müncheberg himself was one of the first pilots to arrive back in France and is seen here with (centre foreground) Feldmarschall Hugo Sperrle, AOC Luftflotte 3. Müncheberg flew his first sortie after returning to France on 26 August, during which he shot down a Spitfire.

Photo 01: By the time 7./JG26 returned to France in September 1941, Münchebergs claims had reached 48, of which 25 were claimed destroyed while he was operating in the Mediterranean theatre. Thus Müncheberg claimed almost half the total of at least 52 enemy aircraft that the Staffel destroyed in the Mediterranean theatre, a record made all the more remarkable by the fact that it sustained no losses during this period.

Profile 00: Messerschmitt Bf 109E.7/N White 12 flown by Oblt. Joachim Müncheberg, Staffelkapitan of 7./JG26, Sicily, March 1941 Oblt. Müncheberg flew two aircraft while operating from Sicily, White 1 and this White 12, both of which were finished in similar 02/71 European-style camouflage schemes. Both aircraft were also marked with a record of Münchebergs Abschuss tally, roundels above the bars denoting the nationality of his claims which were all British aircraft except his second, which was French. White 12 is shown here after the rudder had been marked with Münchebergs 32nd victory, a Wellington shot down off Gozo. Note, however, that these bars are not exactly parallel with the rudder hinge line.

The 02/71 finish, applied in a splinter pattern on the wing uppersurfaces and fuselage top decking with mottled fuselage sides, is weathered and even the auxiliary tank is faded and stained. Unit markings consisted of a white 14 thinly outlined in black and the Red Heart emblem of 7./JG26 on the nose. The Schlageter shield appeared in the usual position on the other side of the fuselage.

Joachim Müncheberg (18 December 1918 – 23 March 1943) was a German Luftwaffe fighter ace during World War II. A flying ace or fighter ace is a military aviator credited with shooting down five or more enemy aircraft during aerial combat. [1] He is credited with 135 enemy aircraft shot down claimed in over 500 combat missions. The majority of his victories were claimed over the Western front with 33 claims over the Eastern Front. Of his 102 aerial victories achieved over the Western Allies are 46 Supermarine Spitfire fighters.

Early World War II

Müncheberg was born at Friedrichsdorf near Dramburg. In his youth he was very much interested in flying and other technical things. He also showed a certain aptitude and talent for athletics prior to joining the military service. [2] After joining the Wehrmacht Heer in 1936, he transferred to the Luftwaffe in 1938. He was then posted to Jagdgeschwader 234. [3]

In October 1939, Müncheberg joined III Gruppe, Jagdgeschwader 26 (JG 26). He claimed his first victory on 7 November 1939, a Royal Air Force Bristol Blenheim Mk. I bomber L1325 of No. 57 Squadron RAF, piloted by P/O HR Bewley. During the invasion of France, Müncheberg claimed eight Allied aircraft shot down, with 4 claimed on one day, 31 May 1940.

or the early part of the Battle of Britain Müncheberg flew as wingman to Major Adolf Galland, Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG 26. In late August he was promoted to Staffelkapitän of 7. Staffel (7th squadron) of JG 26, and on 14 September 1940 was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross (Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes) the same day he achieved his 20th aerial victory. This achievement earned Müncheberg a reference in the Wehrmachtbericht (his first of five in total), an information bulletin issued by the headquarters of the Wehrmacht. He claimed 14 victories in total during the Battle of Britain.

Malta Operations

From February 1941, Müncheberg's staffel became the first Bf 109 unit to operate in the Mediterranean theatre, and from bases in Sicily the staffel was to achieve success out of all proportion to its size, with some 52 victories claimed without losing a single pilot. Müncheberg claimed almost half of these victories. Flying missions over Yugoslavia in support of the German invasion of the Balkans, he also claimed a Yugoslav 'Hawker Fury biplane' on 6 April 1941 of Ind. Fighter Esk, 81 (Bomber) Grupa, JKRV (Porucnik Milenko Milivojevic was killed). He claimed another destroyed on the ground (Both victories were in fact Avia BH-33 biplanes). On 16 February Müncheberg claimed the No. 261 Squadron Hurricane of ace F/L. James MacLachlan, who baled out severely wounded, losing his arm, but returning to combat in 1943. He shot down and killed 261 Squadron's 7-kill Malta ace F/O FF Taylor on 26 February.

In May 1941, Müncheberg was awarded the Oak Leaves and the Italian Medaglia d'Oro and by this time had 43 victories. A 2-month spell in Libya in mid 1941 to support the Afrika Korps saw a further 5 victories claimed.

In August 1941, 7./JG 26 returned to France. Müncheberg was to claim a further 35 victories (including 34 Spitfires) by June 1942. On 19 September, Müncheberg was promoted to the rank of Hauptmann and became Gruppenkommandeur of II/JG 26. On 29 April 1942 Müncheberg probably shot down and killed the Northolt Wing Leader and Polish ace Wing Commander Marian Pisarek.

Russia 1942

In July 1942, Müncheberg was posted to the Eastern Front, joining Jagdgeschwader 51. On 5 September, he claimed his 100th kill. On 9 September, he was awarded the 'Swords' following his 103rd victory. Müncheberg shot down 33 victories over Russian aircraft while being shot down twice himself.

North Africa

On 1 October 1942, Major Müncheberg was appointed Geschwaderkommodore of Jagdgeschwader 77, operating over North Africa and Tunisia. He scored over a No. 92 Squadron Spitfire on 9 November, the first of 24 further victories in the theatre. He force-landed unhurt in his Bf 109-G2 after combat with Kittyhawks flown by F/Lt. HC Shaver & F/Lt. RR Smith of No. 112 Squadron on 10 December 1942. In the spring of 1943 Müncheberg became the second German fighter pilot to achieve 100 aerial victories over Anglo-American adversaries. [4]

Müncheberg was killed on 23 March 1943 over Tunisia when his 135th victim, a USAAF 52nd Fighter Group Spitfire exploded in front of him after a close burst of cannon fire. The Spitfire was piloted by Captain Theodore Sweetman. [5] [6] Müncheberg managed to bail out and landed severely wounded in his parachute. Although the search team quickly recovered him, Müncheberg died on the way to a field hospital. [4]

Luftwaffe pilot Joachim Müncheberg

Joachim Müncheberg was born on 18 December 1918 at FriedrichsdoRG in the Dramburg region of Pommern. He joined the Wehrmacht as an infantryman in October 1936. In October 1938, ObeRGähnrich Müncheberg transferred to the Luftwaffe. On completion of his flying training, he was posted to I./JG234. In October 1939, Müncheberg joined III./JG26. Leutnant Müncheberg was assigned to 10.(N)/JG26. On 23 September, he was appointed Adjutant of III./JG26.

He recorded his first victory on 7 November: a RAF Blenheim twin-engine bomber shot down near Opladen. During the invasion of France, Müncheberg claimed eight French and British aircraft shot down. Oberleutnant Müncheberg had recorded 10 victories by end of July 1940. On 22 August 1940, he was appointed Staffelkapitän of 7./JG26. On 14 September 1940, he was awarded the Ritterkreuz. Müncheberg achieved his 20th victory the same day. He claimed 14 victories during the Battle of Britain.

From February 1941, Müncheberg's unit operated in the Mediterranean theatre from bases in Sicily. The unit was to achieve success out of all proportion to its size. The unit gained 52 victories without losing a single pilot. Müncheberg claimed almost half of the victories. In addition to flying missions over Malta, Müncheberg also flew over Yugoslavia in support of the German invasion of the Balkans. He claimed a JKRV Fury biplane fighter shot down near Podgorica on 6 April 1941 and claimed another as a ground victory.

Müncheberg had mis-identified his victims. Both victories were, in fact, over Avia BH-33 biplane fighters. On 7 May 1941, Müncheberg was awarded the Eichenlaub (Nr 12) and the Italian Medagalia d'Oro. Müncheberg had 43 victories to his credit. A sojourn in Libya during June-July 1941, to support Rommel's Afrika Korps repel the British relief of Tobruk, saw Müncheberg add a further five victories to his tally. In August 1941, 7./JG26 was transferred to France. Müncheberg shot down a RAF Spitfire fighter near Dunkirk on 29 August to record his 50th victory. From the time he returned from North Africa until he left JG26 in late June 1942, Müncheberg was to claim 35 victories of which 34 would be Spitfires, including his 50th victory on 29 August, his 60th on 8 December, his 70th on 26 April 1942 and his 80th on 2 June. On 19 September, Müncheberg was promoted to the rank of Hauptmann and appointed Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG26. On 22 July 1942, Müncheberg was posted to the Eastern Front to join JG51.

On 5 September, he recorded his 100th victory. On 9 September, he was awarded the Schwertern (Nr 19) following his 103rd victory. Müncheberg achieved 33 victories over Russian aircraft (84 – 116). However, Müncheberg was shot down twice during his four weeks on the Eastern Front. On 1 October 1942, Major Müncheberg was appointed Kommodore of JG77, operating over North Africa, Sicily and Tunisia. Müncheberg added 24 victories to his victory total but had to force-land his Bf 109 G-2 (W.Nr. 10725) following aerial combat with RAF Kittyhawk fighters on 10 December 1942. Müncheberg was killed on 23 March 1943 over Tunisia in combat with USAAF Spitfire fighters from the 52nd Fighter Group when, after shooting down one, he was in collision with a second. He crashed to his death in Bf 109G-6 (W.Nr. 16381).

Joachim Müncheberg scored 135 aerial victories in over 500 missions. 102 victories were achieved over the Western Front and 33 on the Eastern Front. He shot down at least 46 Spitfire fighters.
