Profile: The black-white checker pattern appeared on aircraft flown by I./JG 1 for a short period in 1943. As depicted, the aircraft was flown between October 4 and October 17 when Kunze achieved his sixth and seventh kills, both B-17s. Bernhard Kunze is credited with nine kills in total – seven B-17s, one P-47 and one B-24. He died on January 5, 1944 when downed by friendly AA fire during a combat mission against US four-engined bombers …just three days prior to his son's birth.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-4 1./JG 1 W. Nr. 583 flown by Uffz. Karl Knespel Deelen the Netherlands April 1943

Profile: Aircraft W. Nr. 583, from a series of photographs taken at Deelen in April 1943, was entrusted to Fw. Fritz Husser. Since the aircraft had only one kill recorded on the rudder, it was very likely that the aircraft was actually flown by Uffz. Knespel, who on September 28th, 1942, shot down a British Wellington. Uffz. Knespel fatally crashed in this aircraft on July 28th, 1943. The camouflage of this aircraft, sprayed in RLM74/75/76, carries also the markings of 6./JG 1, a white engine cowl and spinner. The cowl also has the emblem of I. Gruppe JG 1, and the Jagdgeschwader 1 'Oessau' marking below the windscreen.

WNr 550476 The personal mount of the Commander of 1./JG 1, Oblt Georg 'Murr' Schott, it carries Schott's personal marking consisting of an arched black cat. The black and white checkerboard pattern served, for a short timeframe during the summer of 1943, as a unit marking for 1./JG 1. Georg Scott flew already during the Spanish CivilWar, where he gained three aerial victories in 1938. During the Battle of France, he downed two Hurricanes and two MS.406s. He was one of the most successful pilots of his unit during the Battle of Britain, and in a span of five weeks, he had brought down eight Spitfires. In 1943, he served with I./JG 1 (ex IV./JG 1). Integrated into 1.Staffel, he served as its commander from the beginning of June, 1943. Over the next two months, he shot down three B-17s and a Hawker Typhoon. The 27th of September, 1943, became a fateful day for Scott, when, in a fight with American bombers, his fighter was hit by defensive fire, and Scott bailed. Despite having been able to get into his life raft, rescue did not locate him until he was found with no signs of life on the shore of the island of Sylt on October 11th, 1943.

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190s of I. Gruppe, JG 1, are famous for their colourful markings, especially for their checkered or striped cowlings. Black & white stripes identified the Gruppe´s Stab aircraft and appeared in the second half of 1942 for the first time. After the surprise attack by the 78th FG´s Thunderbolts against JG1's airbase on October 8, 1943, the remainder of the Gruppe (1st, 2nd and 3rd Staffel) changed their checkered cowlings, being too similar to those of the 78th FG, to black and white stripes. The stripes completely disappeared from JG 1 aircraft during the first half of 1944. The red horizontal band on the fuselage was typical in the fall of 1943 and early 1944, and not only on JG 1 aircraft. It´s meaning is not currently clear, and should not be confused with the Reich Defence marking used from the summer of 1944 on.

W.Nr. 430352, 2. /JG 1, Dortmund Airfield, Germany, January, 1944 Focke-Wulfy Fw 190 od I. Gruppe JG 1 jsou známé díky svému pestrému zbarvení, kdy létaly s kostkovaným èi pruhovaným vzorem na motorovém krytu. Èerno-bílé podélné pruhy oznaèovaly stroje štábu této Gruppe a objevily se v druhé polovinì roku 1942. Po útoku Thunderboltù od 78th FG ozdobených podobným kostièkovaným markingem dne 8. øíjna 1943 na èerno-bílé pruhy pøešly také stroje 1. až 3. Staffel, které od dubna 1943 nosily na motorových krytech kostkovaný vzor, podobný jako P-47 z 78th FG. Pruhy z motorových krytù zmizely bìhem první poloviny roku 1944. Èervený pruh okolo zádì stroje pak na pøelomu let 1943 a 1944 nosily nejen stroje JG 1, ale také dalších jednotek. Jeho význam není pøesnì znám a nelze jej zamìòovat za pruh jednotek obrany Øíše používaný od léta 1944.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A8 White 7 Flown by Walter Kohne

Focke-Wulf Uffz. Walter KÖHNE, 1./JG1, Deelen, the Netherlands, July, 1943

Walter Köhne came to JG1 from the Eastern Front, where he had flown with 4./JG52. His commander was the legendaryGerhard Barkhorn at that time. His first aerial successes were gained on the Eastern Front, and he was to become one of the greatest pilots with JG1 operating over the Western Front. He became a lieutenant, and took over command of 6./JG11. He achieved his 30th, and last, victoryduring Operation Bodenplatte, on January1st, 1945. He joined III./EJG2 in the spring of 1945 to flythe Me262. Each unit (Staffel) within JG1 had its own engine cowl and spinner color. Attached to 3./JG1, Kohne's aircraft had a yellow cowl and spinner. The fuselage number, '7', as well as the spinner, are often portrayed as white although they were most likely yellow as portrayed here. It is assumed that this aircraft was one of the first front line Fw 190 to flywith the W.Gr.21 rocket launchers.

Uffz. Walter Köhne, 1./JG 1, Deelen, Holandsko, èervenec 1943. Walter Köhne byl k JG 1 pøevelen z východní fronty od 4./JG 52, kde byl jeho velitelem legendární Gerhard Barkhorn. Ji; na východní frontì zaznamenal nìkolik vítìzství a u na západì operující JG 1 se zaøadil mezi nejúspìšnìjší stíhaèe. Pozdìji se stal poruèíkem a velel 6./JG 11. Poslední (30.) vítìzství zaznamenal pøi operaci Bodenplatte na Nový Rok 1945. Na jaøe 1945 byl pøevelen k III./EJG 2 aby se pøeškolil na Me 262. Barva morových krytù a ku;elù rozlišovala jednotlivé Staffel I./JG 1. V rámci 3.Staffel I./JG 1 operující Köhneho stroj má ;lutý motorový kryt a vrtulový ku;el. Aèkoli trupové èíslo 7 je èasto uvádìno jako bílé, s nejvìtší pravdìpodobností bylo také ;luté. Pøedpokládáme, ;e tento stroj byl, jako jeden z prvních prvoliniových Fw 190, vyzbrojen raketami W.Gr.21.

Anton-Rudolf 'Toni' Piffer was born on 16 May 1918 at Zirol in the Tirol region of Austria. He joined the Luftwaffe in 1938. On 3 April 1942, Piffer was posted to JG1 based in Holland. Feldwebel Piffer was assigned to 11./JG1. He recorded his first victory on 19 September, when he shot down a RAF Mosquito twin-engine photo-reconnaisance aircraft over Osnabruck. The unit was redesignated 2./JG1 on 1 April 1943. By the end of 1943, Oberfeldwebel Piffer had 17 victories to his credit. However, he had received wounds as a result of an emergency landing near Terwolde on 18 October, due to engine damage to his Fw 190 A-6 (W.Nr. 530 720) "Black 3". He was wounded again in aerial combat with USAAF bombers and fighters on 11 November. On 8 April 1944, Piffer shot down a USAAF B-24 four-engine bomber near Salzwedel but was shot down himself in Fw 190 A-8 (W.Nr. 170 044) "Black 3". He was wounded in the encounter. Piffer was promoted to the rank of Leutnant and appointed Staffelfuhrer of 1./JG1 on 1 May 1944. On 8 April, he was wounded over Salzwedel in aerial combat. He successfully baled out of Fw 190 A-8 (W.Nr. 170 044) "Black 3". Piffer was required to make a belly-landing on 13 May, when he was rammed by a USAAF P-47 fighter. He was more fortunate than his opponent however, who crashed into the sea. On 16 June, Piffer shot down two RAF Spitfire fighters over the Invasion front. On 17 June 1944, Piffer was shot down and killed in Fw 190 A-8 (W.Nr. 172 604) "White 3" in aerial combat with USAAF fighters over La Cordonniere. He was posthumously awarded the Ritterkreuz on 20 October 1944.
