Messerschmitt Bf 109F2 IV./JG51 Black 1 Heinz Bar Russia Aug 31 1941 00

Profile 01: Messerschmitt Bf 109F-2 'Black 1' of IV./JG51 The camouflage on this aircraft consisted of the standard 74 and 75 uppersurfaces with 76 undersurfaces and fuselage particularly finely mottled with 02, 70 and either 74 or 75. The spinner was 71 overall and the original yellow engine cowling and rudder had both been overs prayed to provide a more effective camouflage. A IV. Gruppe symbol was applied aft of the fuselage Balkenkreuz and a strip of red primer had been applied to the fuselage under the windscreen, presumably where some minor repair had been carried out. Two black victory bars appeared on the rudder.

Messerschmitt Bf 109F IV./JG51 (B1++) Heinz Bar Russia Aug 31 1941 01

Photo 01: Oblt. Heinz Bar of IV/JG51 was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 2 July 1941 for 27 air victories. By 18 August, just six weeks later, his tally has risen to 60 and he was awarded the Eichenlaub. Soon afterwards, on 31 August 1941, he shot down two Pe-2s as his 79th and 80th victories but was obliged to make a forced landing behind enemy lines.At the time, Bar was flying a Bf 109F coded 'Black 1', possibly the aircraft shown here (RIGHT), although with only two victory bars, this is clearly not the machine he normally flew. Although both his ankles were sprained in the emergency landing, Bar quickly abandoned his machine and hid himself to avoid detection by Soviet troops who arrived to examine the aircraft. He then remained concealed until the following morning when, endeavouring to disguise himself as a Russian peasant, he succeeded in returning to the German lines. Bar then spent the next two months in hospital recovering from the effects of walking on his injured ankles.

Pilots IV./JG51 Heinz Bar 1941 01

Photo 01: On 20 July 1941, Major Friedrich Beckh, the Kommandeur of lV./JG51, took over from Obstlt. Werner Molders as commander of JG51. Beckh (seen here on the right) was succeeded by Oblt. Karl-Gottfried Nordmann (left). Here, both officers apply new rank insignia to the flying jacket of Oblt. Heinz Bar who took over from Nordmann as Staffelkapitan of 12./JG51. By 22 July, Bar had already claimed 40 victories, followed on the 29th by his 50th. On 14 August, as the Wehrmacht's 31st recipient, he was awarded the Oak Leaves. Bar survived the war with 221 victories.

Photo 01: Bf 109F-2 'Brown 5' of 12./JG51 after a landing accident early in the Russian campaign. The fuselage shows signs of extensive repainting and the machine-gun troughs on the engine cowling have been painted red, or black. This aircraft is probably one of the four Bf 109Fs of IV./JG51 which were damaged in landing accidents at Prusana on 24 June 1941, a fifth aircraft being similarly damaged at Krezewica on the same day. Later, this Staffel was led by Oblt. Heinz Bar, who took command on 20 July 1941 after his predecessor, Oblt. Karl-Gottfried Nordmann, replaced Major LG Beckh as Kommandeur of IV./JG51.

ASISBIZ its hard to tell from the photo but it's supposed to be brown 5 not yellow.

Photo 01: Two Bf 109Fs seen under repair, or perhaps being cannibalised, during the Autumn of 1941. In the background, 'Black 8' of lV./JG51 has had its engine removed and the rudder of the aircraft in the foreground has been damaged. Note also the eight victory bars on this machine, all recording earlier kills in the West.
