Pictures taken after 1/09/1939 since we can see the bullet's hole through the cabin! J. Vasco (see coll. J. Vasco under picture) does confirm that he owns the pictures (all photo album and copy of logbook), that he did make an interview with Hintze and that it is Hintze plane (see bullet's hole under canopy) taken in Przasnysz, that is between 10/9 and 18/9 so ZG 1 not JGr. 101!!!
