Profile 00: Messerschmitt Bf 109E-7 flown by Hptm. Gunther Scholz, Kommandeur of III./JG5, Petsamo, Finland, 1942 Instead of the normal 74/75/02 mottle, the uppersurface camouflage on this aircraft is believed to have been oversprayed completely in a rather simple scheme of RLM 74, except for the top of the tail around the Hakenkreuz. The finish was uneven, giving the impression of two or more low-contrast colours and the machine also had yellow panels under the cowling and wingtips, with the yellow rudder marked with 30 victory bars. The Gruppe badge and Scholz's personal emblem were carried below the cockpit on the port side only.

Photo 01-02: FliegeRGuhrer Nord-Ost was substantially reinforced in the Spring of 1942 when III./JG5 transferred from the west coast of Norway and joined II./JG5 in the Petsamo area. III./JG5 was commanded by Hptm. Gunther Scholz who, at that time, had 26 victories and had previously served with 7./JG54 on the Eastern Front. The photograph (Photo 01) shows Hptm. Scholz's Bf 109E-7 in the late Spring or early Summer of 1942 with 30 victory bars marked on the rudder.

Photo 01: Seen from left to right on this Bf 109F are the badges of III./JG5 - a Lapp boot superimposed on a white field and blue cross - combined with 8./JG5's emblem of a yellow Edelweiss on a dark brown shield outlined in yellow. The spread-eagle emblem was in red, outlined in white, and is reported to have been in memory of Hptm. Alfred Pomaska who was killed over France in 1940. This marking was apparently applied to a number of 8./JG5 aircraft, although the association with Hptm. Pomaska remains unexplained.
