Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9, W.Nr. 210240, Oblt. Klaus Faber, Ainring airbase, Austria, May 1945
This aircraft also carried a slogan on the port side with a light hearted connotation to it, 'Rein Muss er, und wenn wir beide weinen' ('he must go in, even if we both cry'). Faber stated that on the 2nd or 3rd of May, 1945, he shot down one, prehaps two, P-47s near Bad Aibling. In all probability, he was flying this airplane at the time. Together with Wübke's Red '3', Red '13' fell into the hands of the Allies at Ainring. The black-white-red emblem on the port side of the fuselage under the cockpit designates Headquarters (black and white checkerboard) protected by the flight of red aircraft (red circle).
