Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 1./JG301 Pilot Lt. Horst Prenzel W.Nr 160087 July 1944

Messerschmitt Bf 109G6 W.Nr 160087 flown by JG53 during the day and II./JG301 by night. Used FuBI 2f radio equipment and was fitted with a small landing light under the wing. This machine was captured at Braunschardt, Germany.

2 Staffel I. Gruppe Jagdgeschwader 301 - 2./JG301

13 Staffel IV. Gruppe Jagdgeschwader 301 - 13./JG301

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10 W.Nr. 491 171 or 491 241 "Weisse 14", 13./JG 301, Loburg, Germany, before 19 March 1945. JG 301 lost 2 March 1945 a staggering 20 Bf 109 G-10's, all Erla built. Two of them are recorded as 'Bauchlandung nach Luftkampf' at Loberg, north of Leipzig. Those are W.Nr. 491171 and W.Nr. 491241. Alas their tactical markings are not recorded, nor the name of their pilots. Given the landscape which does match, and the way they were lost, one can be confident that "Weisse 14" is either W.Nr 491 171 or 491 241.
