Profile 00: Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-5, W.Nr. 410054, flown by Oberst Walter Grabmann, 1943-1944. This aircraft was camouflaged in the standard mid-war 74/75/76 day fighter scheme and the green 70 spinner had a white ring near the tip. Although this aircraft has elsewhere been identified as 'Red X', careful comparison in the accompanying photographs between the tone of the letter and the known yellow areas under the wingtips and under the nose indicate that the aircraft letter was also yellow, edged in white. The badge of the Nachtjagd was applied to the engine cowling and the aerials under the fuselage were non-standard.

Photo's 01-02: is another Fw 190A-5, WNr. 410054, which Grabmann first flew in July 1943 when he was Jagdfliegerfuhrer Holland, retained after his appointment as Kommandeur of 3.Jagddivision, and continued to fly until at least May 1944. The 3.Jagddivision, which had a link via the 1.Jagddivision to the original Nachtjagddivision, controlled NJG1, NJG2, NJG4 and NJG5, hence the 'Englandblitz' badge of the Nachtjagd on the aircraft's engine cowling. Grabmann, who was promoted to Generalmajor on 1 August 1944, remained with 3.Jaddivision until 1945. Walter Grabmann shot down 6 enemy aircraft while flying Bf-110's and ended the war with 13.
