Profile 00: Messerchmitt Bf 109F.2 flown by Oblt. Siegfried Schnell,Staffelkapitänof 9./JG2, May 1942 This aircraft, W.Nr. 9552, showed signs of having its earlier all-yellow nose area reduced by respraying with the uppersurface colors 74 and 75. The undersurfaces were RLM 76, and the aircraft had a large area of black protective paint applied to the area of the exhaust and wing root. The yellow triangle beneath the fuel cap cover was marked to indicate the aircraft used 87 octane fuel and the spinner was entirely Green RLM 70.

Messerschmitt Bf 109F 9./JG2 (White 5+) unknown pilot France April 1941

Photo 01: The III./JG2 began to receive its first Bf 109F's at the end of April 1941. This early examp1e, 'White 5' was assigned to 9./JG2 but has not yet had the Staffelwappen applied. The green spinner with a white segment is typical of the period, as is the yellow on the nose, now confined to the lower cowling. Note also the black heat-resistant paint applied around the exhaust. The layout of the armament - two MG l7s mounted over the engine and a single MG 151 cannon firing down the propeller shaft - was considered a great improvement over that of earlier models because, being concentrated in the nose, it produced a better cone of fire. Although early cannon were not entirely satisfactory and stoppages were fairly frequent, a further improvement was that the pilot could clear a jam from the cockpit.

Egon Mayer

Egon Mayer was born on 19 August 1917 at Konstanz in Bodensee. He joined the Luftwaffe in 1937. After a regular peacetime training, Fahnenjunker Mayer was posted to I./JG2 on 6 December 1939. By the time Mayer participated in the French campaign, he was serving with 6./JG2. Mayer recorded his first victory on 13 June 1940, when he shot down a French Morane fighter. From 1 August 1940, he served at the Jagdfliegerschule Werneuchen. Mayer had returned to JG2 by September 1940. Mayer was assigned to 3./JG2, based at Beaumont-le-Roger in France. He claimed a RAF Hurricane fighter shot down near Portland on 7 October to record his second victory. Leutnant Mayer was transferred to 8./JG2, where he recorded one victory, a Hurricane shot down near Chichester on 15 November 1940 for his third victory. On 10 June 1941, Oberleutnant Mayer was appointed Staffelkapitan of 7./JG2, based at St Pol-Brias. He was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 1 August 1941 for 20 victories. Mayer recorded his 30th victory, yet another Spitfire, shot down on 15 April 1942. On 19 August, his 25th birthday, Mayer shot down two RAF Spitfire fighters over Dieppe (51-52). In November 1942, Hauptmann Mayer was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG2.

On 23 November, Mayer recorded his first victories over USAAF four-engine bombers, when he shot down two B-17s and a B-24 (53-55). With Georg-Peter Eder (78 victories, RK-EL), Mayer is credited with developing the head-on attack technique against the Allied daylight bomber raids. The technique brought both considerable success against the four-engine bombers. He was awarded the Eichenlaub (Nr 232) on 16 April 1943 after 63 victories. Oberstleutnant Mayer was appointed Kommodore of JG2 on 1 July 1943, following the departure of Oberst Walter Oesau (127 victories, RK-S, killed in action 11 May 1944) to become Jafu Bretagne.

He shot down three USAAF B-17 four-engine bombers in 19 minutes on 6 September 1943 (78-80). On 1 December, Mayer claimed four USAAF P-47 fighters and a B-17 bomber shot down (85-89). He achieved his 90th victory on 31 December and was the first to reach 100 victories on the Channel Front on 5 February 1944, when he shot down a P-47 fighter near Arguen. He claimed his 101st and 102nd, and last, victories on 6 February, when he shot down two P-47 fighters in the Sens area. On 2 March 1944, Mayer led a formation from JG2 against an USAAF daylight raid. USAAF P-47 fighters escorted the bombers. The fighter escort overpowered Mayer's attacking group and he was shot down and killed near Montmedy in Fw 190 A-6 (W.Nr. 470 468). He was posthumously awarded the Schwertern (Nr 51).

Egon Mayer shot down 102 enemy aircraft. All his victories were recorded over the Western Front and included 26 four-engine bombers, 51 Spitfire and 12 P-47 fighters.

Siegfried 'Wumm' Schnell

Siegfried 'Wumm' Schnell was born on 23 January 1916 at Zielenzig in Mark Brandenburg. He joined the Luftwaffe in 1936. At the beginning of World War 2, Feldwebel Schnell was serving with 4./JG2. On 14 May 1940, he scored his first victory, a French Bloch 152 fighter. He also participated in the Battle of Britain. Leutnant Schnell was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 9 November for 20 victories. On 24 June 1941, he was transfered as Staffelkapitän to 9./JG2. On 8 July he shot down three Spitfires to achieve his 40th victory and was awarded the Eichenlaub (No. 18). He was at this time one of the highest scoring aces of JG2. On 19 August 1942, over Dieppe he destroyed five Spitfires to reach his 70th victory. Schnell reached his 80th victory on 4 April 1943.

On 1 May 1944, Schnell was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG54. On 11 January 1944, he downed three B-17s to reach 90 victories. On 11 February, he was transfered to IV./JG54 which was based on the Eastern Front. He shot down three Russian aircraft, but on 25 February 1944 over Narva he was shot down in Bf-109 G-6 (WNr. 411 675) and killed by a Soviet fighter. 'Wumm' Schnell flew about 500 missions during which he scored a total of 93 victories. 90 of these were scored on the Western Front. His score also included 12 four-engined bombers.

Bruno Stolle

Bruno Stolle was born on 13 April 1915 at Münster in Westfalen. Stolle was a blind flying instructor with I./LG 1 at the beginning of the war but was then transferred to III./JG51. On 15 March 1940, Stolle was transferred to 8./JG2. He took part in the Battle for France. He also participated in the Battle of Britain, where he gained his first aerial victories on 11 August when shot down two RAF fighters. Stolle was appointed Staffelkapitän of 8./JG2 on 7 September 1940. He had three victories to his credit at this time. His scoring rate increased in 1941 with 11 Spitfires and a single Blenheim recorded. Bruno Stolle was awarded the Ehrenpokal on 12 September 1941 and the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold on 29 October 1942. After 32 victories he received the Ritterkreuz on 17 March 1943.

On 1 July 1943, Stolle was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG2. He led the Gruppe until 7 December 1943 when he was relieved by Hauptmann Herbert Huppertz (78 victories, RK-EL, KIA 8 June 1944). In February 1944, Stolle was transferred to Schiessschule der Luftwaffe at Vaerlöse in Denmark, where he undertook an instructing role until July 1944. In the middle of August 1944, he was transferred to Erprobungskommando Ta 152 at Rechlin. From October until 25 November he was acting Gruppenkomandeur I./JG11, following which he returned to EKdo Ta 152 at Rechlin. Bruno Stolle flew 271 combat missions and shot down 35 enemy aircraft on the Western Front including three four-engine bombers and 19 Spitfires.
