Focke-Wulf Fw-190A7 W.Nr. 642962, flown by Maj. Hans-Günther von Kornatzki, CO of Sturmstaffel 1, Salzwedel Air Base, Germany, February, 1944

Von Kornatzki joined the Luftwaffe in 1933. His combat experience grew during the Battle of Britain as he acted as CO of II./JG 52. From October 1943, he led Sturmstaffel 1, the specialized unit focused on combat against four-engined bombers. Von Kornatzki died in an emergency landing on September 12, 1944, caused by return fire from a B-17 Flying Fortress. The black-white-black band identifies this as a Sturmstaffel 1 aircraft. The Sturmstaffel 1 Fw 190s, the forerunners of the Fw 190 A-8/R2 Sturmbocks, had the additional protection of bullet-proof glass on the canopy and armoured plates on the cockpit sides. Note the Sturmstaffel 1 badge on the left side of the cowling.

Remarks:KIA 2 November, 1944, in Wk# 682057 when he reportedly rammed a B-17 headed for the Gelsenkirchen Oil facility. After the collision, he was unable to bail out of the falling mass of wreckage. There is little evidence to support the ramming. His wingman this date, Fw Oscar Bösch, indicated Gerth was shot down by fighters. In addition, he was reported to have bailed, but his chute did not open. Promoted to Hptm posthumously. One of the most daring of the JG 3 pilots, he was shot down nearly a dozen times. He was known to have lost a JG 300 aircraft on 2 January, 1944, circumstances unknown. One known victory, a B-17 at Bielefeld on 22 February, 1944, while in Sturmstaffel 1.

Willi Maximowitz

Willi Maximowitz was born on 29 January 1920 at Wuppertal-Barnen. At the end of 1943, when Major von Kornatzski (6 victories) was looking for volunteers for Sturmstaffel 1, Maximowitz, by this time an Unteroffizier with JG1, was one of those who enlisted. He had already achieved his first success when he shot down a USAAF B-24 four-engine bomber on 30 January 1944. On 23 March 1944, he shot down his third four-engine bomber, a USAAF B-17, but his Focke-Wulf 190 A-6 (W.Nr. 551 099) "White 10" was hit by return fire from the bombers and a wounded Maximowitz had to bale out near Wuppertal. Following recovery from his wounds he returned to Sturmstaffel 1 and added another B-17, shot down over Helmstedt on 29 April 1944, to his tally. On 8 May 1944, Sturmstaffel 1 was integrated into IV./JG3 as its 11. Staffel. In June , Maximowitz undertook combat flights in support of the German army in Normandy. These missions were flown with IV.Gruppe from Dreux airfield in France. Maximowitz shot down a B-17 near Leipzig for his 10th victory on 20 July. On 28 July , IV./JG3 scrambled against USAAF four-engine bombers. Maximowitz was shot down by the fighter escort and was slightly wounded. On 30 July, he was promoted to the rank of Feldwebel, but was wounded in a landing accident in Fw 190 A-8/R2 (W.Nr. 680 756). After recuperating from his injuries, he returned to his unit (renamed 14./JG3 on 10 August).

He flew as Kaczmarek to Gruppenkommandeur, IV./JG3, Hauptmann Wilhelm Moritz (44 victories, 15 of them four-engine bombers, RK). In February 1945, IV./JG3 moved to the Russian Front. On 11 March, Maximowitz was credited with three Russian Boston twin-engine bombers and a fighter shot down. On 20 April 1945, Oberfeldwebel Maximowitz of 14./JG3, failed to return from a combat mission. He was probably killed in aerial combat with Russian fighters around Frankfurt am Oder. He told Feldwebel Oskar Bosch (18 victories, including 8 four-engine bombers) during this mission that he had an MP 40 submachine-gun in his cockpit and he was saving the last round for himself if he got shot down!

Willi Maximowitz was credited with 27 victories. He recorded 12 victories over the Eastern front. All 15 victories recorded over the Western front were four-engine bombers. He claimed one bomber by ramming on 23 March 1944 and possibly rammed another bomber, date unknown. Maximowitz was posthumously awarded the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold on 1 January 1945.
