Would anyone have any info on KG-3 Blitz (JU-88) that operated in the Velikiye Luki area around the 1941-42 time frame?
I would like to find out what airfield they operated out of near that city, also any info on the 3.1 LW Bau-Batl. 6/IV who built the hangars for
these planes. I purchased a photo album at auction in 1991 that belonged to a soldier who was attached to this unit (Bau-6/IV),
hundred of pictures, planes, bombs, hangars. The album portrays their march thru Minsk, Vitebsk, then Velikiye Luki. Apparently
something big happened around July 1942 as it shows his unit being disbanded and everyone sent to Flak school. The
main thing for me is the airfield, which shows a partial concrete runway. Also, if any help the JU-52's have BFS-2 & BFS-4
markings. Anybody that has any info on this article, it would be greatly appreciated. Red Lion

Hi,

Two things that may be of assistance:-

1. Have a look at this page

2. Obtain a copy of Stankey and de Zeng's "Bomber Units of the Luftwaffe 1939-45 Vol 1"

These may help narrow your search.

Happy New Year.
