Messerschmitt Bf 109s & Other Aircraft of I./EKG(J)

Cover previewThere has been realized an operation within the Luftwaffe since autumn 1944 to increase number of shortage fighter pilots by retraing of bomber pilots. This transformation and pilot training have been described in our titles “Messerschmitt Me 262s of KG & KG(J) units” and “Messerschmitt Bf 109s of KG(J) 6”. This study deals with the I./EKG(J) which should ensure to continuously replenish the personnel strength of KG(J) units and to substitute expected losses and which activities were mostly connected with Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia. The title extends number of titles with this theme to the trilogy.
As is usual in the “Luftwaffe over Czech Territory – 1945” line the historical description is accompanied by historical documents, tables, b/w and colour photos and description of 38 aircraft from that 28 Messerschmitt Bf 109s, 5 Focke-Wulf Fw 190s and 5 Arado Ar 96Bs.

Bf 109F 4, W.Nr.13204
from: Jörg Meincke
The loss of Siegfried Westenberger, 1./ JG 4, 02.03.1943 (page 135) seems indeed an mistake in records. It wasn't W.Nr. 13204 but 13205 (regarding Matti Salonen, TOCH). This is also supported by an mention of W.Nr.13204 in flight log Oppelmayer, 4.(Süd)/ FlüG 1, with an flight from Frankfurt-Rebstock to Mannheim on 18.03.1944.

Thank you very much for the information, Mr. Meincke. The one makes a history of W.Nr. 13204 more clear.
Excellent help, thanks for it.
