Photo 01-02: On 5 August 1940, Hptm. Douglas Pitcairn, Staffelkapitan of I./JG51 collided with his wingman, future Ritterkreuztrager, Ofw. Erwin Fleig, on the airfield at Pihen, France during take-off. Despite serious injuries, Pitcairn returned to his unit in October of that year but doctors pronounced that his operational flying days were over. His place was taken by future Eichenlaubtdiger, Oblt. Hermann-Friedrich Joppien. Note the Staffel's Mickey-Mouse emblem beneath the cockpit on 'White 8'.

Photo 01: Battle damage sustained by Ofw. Karl Schmidt's 'White 3' of I./JG51, Summer 1940. The kind of attack most feared by Luftwaffe fighter pilots operating over England in 1940 resulted from the RAF fighters first diving out of the sun, and then making a high speed vertical climbing attack from below to fire into engine cooling system of the German fighters. Correctly executed, such an attack was almost guaranteed to result in a seized engine, a forced landing and an uncertain reception in hostile territory.

Pilots 2./JG51 Oblt. Viktor Molders 1940 01

Photo's 01-02: Oblt. Viktor Molders, the Staffelkapitan of 2,/JG51, was the brother of the famous Major Werner Molders, Kommodore of JG51. He fought in the Polish campaign, had been in Norway and Holland, made twenty war flights against Great Britain and claimed seven victories. The 2.Staffel was the Jabo Staffel of JG51 and, on 7 October, the unit was making a fighter-bomber attack with 250 kg bombs against the docks in London when it was attacked by RAF Hurricanes. Oblt. Molders' aircraft was hit from below by two long bursts fired by Sgt. Eric Wright of 605Sqn. With smoke and glycol pouring from his aircraft, Molders flew at rooftop height back towards the Channel but his engine overheated and he made a forced landing at Guestling in Sussex. The nose and tail of this machine a Bf 109E-4/B, coded 'Black 1', were yellow.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3 captured DG200 J H Heyworth a Rolls Royce test pilot 1942

Photo 01:Captured Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3, DG200, in flight while serving with No. 1426 (Enemy Aircraft) Flight. Formerly 'Black 12' of 2/JG51, this aircraft force-landed at Manston, Kent, on 27 November 1940, after being attacked by Supermarine Spitfires of No. 66 Squadron RAF over the Thames estuary. After repair at the Royal Aircraft Establishment it was delivered to Rolls-Royce Ltd at Hucknall in February 1941 for engine performance tests. On 8 February 1942 it was passed to the Controller of Research and Development at Hatfield for propeller tests before going on to the Aircraft and Armament Experimental Establishment at Boscombe Down, and, in March 1942, to No. 1426 Flight at Duxford and later Collyweston. In 1943, DG200 was put into storage, eventually moving to St Athan in 1969 for refurbishment. Once restored to its wartime paint scheme, it moved to the Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon in 1976, where it is presently on display in the Battle of Britain Hall. DG200 is seen here being flown without its cockpit canopy, which was removed (and never replaced) while the aircraft was at Hucknall to enable Wing Commander J H Heyworth, a Rolls Royce test pilot who was very tall, to fit into the cockpit.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E 1./JG51 (B4+) Russia 1941-42 01

Photo 01: Weapons personnel with a Bf 109E fighter-bomber in Russia. Even on snow-covered airfields, no difficulties were encountered in taxiing or taking off with bomb-laden aircraft, provided the maximum bomb load did not exceed 250kg, that the surface of the runway had been hardened by rolling, and the aircraft was taxied at high speed. Extremely rapid turns had to be avoided, however, as this caused the outside wheel to press into the snow. A particular problem which arose in the Winter of 1941/42 when targets immediately ahead of friendly troops were attacked was that the winter clothing worn by both German and Russian forces made the identification of friendly and enemy troops extremely difficult. Because of this, there were several incidents when friendly troops were attacked in error and the soldiers' confidence in the Luftwaffe undermined. In this photograph, the Bf 109F fighter in the background is believed to have the 'Gemsbock' emblem of I./JG51, perhaps indicating that the fighter-bomber also belonged to JG51.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E 3./JG51 (Br4+) crash-landed Belgium 01

Photo 01: This aircraft, 'Brown 4' of 3./JG51, made an emergency landing on the Belgium coast and is possibly another casualty from the costly mission of 27 November in which 2. and 3./JG51 both lost two pilots killed and one taken PoW, i.e. a total of six pilots.

Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-3 3./JG51 (Y5+) Fw. Wilhelm Erdniss W.Nr 1653 crash-landed UK 00

Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3 of 3./JG51 flown by Fw. Wilhelm Erdniss, 27 November 1940 This aircraft, 'Brown 5', W.Nr. 1653, is believed to have been finished in an uppersurface camouflage of 02 and a locally mixed grey. Although not mentioned in the RAF Crash Report, the above photograph of this aircraft suggests the wingtips were painted white as shown in the profile.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E 3./JG51 (Y5+) Fw. Wilhelm Erdniss W.Nr 1653 crash-landed UK 01

Photo 01:  On the afternoon of , 2./JG51 took off from its base in the Calais area on a fighter-bomber mission while the 3./JG51 made a diversionary freelance patrol. The 3.Staffel crossed the Channel at 22,000 ft, made landfall at Dungeness, and continued to Tunbridge Wells where it turned eastwards. On their right, the pilots saw a squadron of Spitfires flying towards them from the north. The British fighters flew across them, then turned and attacked from the rear. This aircraft, 'Brown 5' flown by Fw. Wilhelm Erdniss, received a number of hits in the oil system and the pilot made a forced landing near Horton Park, close to RAF Hawkinge. The aircraft was later shipped to New Zealand for exhibition and fund-raising purposes and is seen here in the capital, Wellington.
