Eine sehr bekannte Maschine ist die hier gezeigte Bf 109F-4/Trop W.Nr. 10132 von Hauptmann Horst Carganico, die er bei einer Notlandung auf feindlichem Territorium am 12. August 1942 verlor. Die Maschine wurde 1980 in Russland gefunden und von 1995 bis 1998 so original wie moglich restauriert. Heute ist die restaurierte Maschine im National Aviation Museum in Ottawa, Kanada zu bewundern. Meine Interpretation stellt die Maschine nicht in diesem Zustand sondern zur Zeiten des Absturzes in RLM 70/75/79/78 dar. Eine weitere schone Eigenheit war die Mickey Mouse Figur auf der rechten Kuhlerseite, das personliche Symbol von Horst Carganico, dass er auch auf seinen spateren Bf-109 G-Modelen zeigte.
A well know plane is this Bf 109F-4/Trop W.Nr. 10132 flown by Hauptmann Horst Carganico, which was lost as he had to belly land over enemy territory on August 12, 1942. The plane was found 1980 in Russia and during 1995 till 1998 restored to the most original status. Write know the plane is on permanent display at the National Aviation Museum in Ottawa, Canada. My Interpretation shows the plane not in the now displayed Status but as it was painted in RLM 70/75/79/78 at the time of the lost. A very nice Feature was the Mickey Mouse Figure on the right side of the cowling, the personnel emblem Horst Carganico which he used also on his later Bf-109 G-Models.

Horst Carganico

Horst Carganico was born on 27 September 1917 at Breslau. He was the son of General der Flieger, Victor Carganico. Horst joined the Luftwaffe in 1937 as a Fahnenjunker. He learned to fly at pilot school at Berlin-Johannisthal. At the outbreak of World War 2, Carganico was serving as Technical Officer on the staff of JG1. From spring 1940, he served as Adjutant of II./JG77. He served in Norway with this unit arriving there on 11 April 1940. He gained his first victory on 21 June 1940 when he claimed a RAF Hereford near Bergen. He had, in fact, shot down a RAF Beaufort attempting to bomb the German battlecruiser Scharnhorst near Bergen. Several victories followed before II./JG77 was transferred to the Channel Coast on 9 November 1940. He claimed his fifth victory on 30 November, when he shot down a RAF Blenheim bomber. A promotion to Oberleutnant occurred around this time. Carganico was appointed Staffelkapitän of 1./JG77 on 1 January 1941 and joined the unit operating from Sola, Norway. He transferred with the unit to Kirkenes in May 1941. He then served as Staffelkapitän with JGzbV which was formed from 1., 14. and 15./JG77. On 25 July, he claimed a Russian flying boat shot down. Carganico was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 25 September for achieving 27 victories: only the second fighter pilot in the north to do so (first was Hugo Dahmer). In January 1942 I./JGzbV was incorporated into JG5 as I./JG5.

I./JG5 was renamed 6./JG5 in March 1942. Carganico retained leadership of the Staffel through these changes. In spring 1942, he claimed 23 victories in the six weeks to the end of June. Hauptmann Carganico was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG5 in April 1942. Carganico suffered engine failure in Bf 109F-4 (W.Nr. 10256) on 22 July necessitating a forced landing at Murovskij. He returned to his unit the next day.

On 12 August, Carganico was part of a Schwarm escorting a reconnaisance Fw 189 over the Liza front and Murmansk. The formation was intercepted by Russian fighters and in the ensuing combat Carganico's aircraft received hits. The damage was sufficient to force an emergency landing in Bf 109F-4 (W.Nr. 10132) near Motovsk. He evaded capture and returned safely to his unit the next day.

On 26 March 1944 Hauptmann Carganico was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of I./JG5 participating in the Reichsverteidigung. Following aerial combat with USAAF B-17 four-engined bombers on 27 May 1944, he was killed when Bf-109G-5 (W.Nr. 110087) crashed into the ground after hitting high tension cables while Carganico was attempting to make a forced landing near Chevry, France.

Horst Carganico shot down 60 enemy aircraft in about 600 missions. He recorded six victories over the Western front.
