Richard,

Some late June 1943 items:-

24 Jun 1943 - 3./Störkampfstaffel Luftflotte 4 - Fl.PL.Wyschestblijewskaja - Damaged when taxying - Go 145 - Wk Nummer 2811 - 20% damage - no crew injuries listed.

27 Jun 1943 - 5./Störkampfstaffel Luftflotte 4 - Taganrog - Operational error - He 46 - Wk Nummer 73 - 10% damage - no crew injuries listed.

28 Jun 1943 - 5./Störkampfstaffel Luftflotte 4 - Kuteinikowo - Operational error - He 46 - Wk Nummer 1158 - 15% damage - no crew injuries listed.

Its beginning to look like these returns were submitted as blocks.

Andy, I really appreciate your help with this.

From your findings thus far it does lean towards a crew consisting solely of the Flugzeugfuhrer for the Go-145.

Regards Richard.

First post for myself of 2012, a Happy New Year to all!


I have also been given sight of this additional QMG Return:

06.08.43 3./4 place & circs unknown Go-145 W.Nr. 961 100% Pilot: Lt. Eberhard, Hans (missing in action)

Still no loss returns from 3./Störkampfgruppe Luftflotte 4 listing 2 members of crew in the machine.

If anyone can provide any further information, it will be very well received indeed.

Regards Richard.

Richard,

Only got as far as mid-July 1943 when I restarted checking recently.

Will post details of any further findings as I come across the entries in the QMG returns.

I am now in posession of the information I was seeking reference the Luftwaffe QM Returns for 3./Störkampfgruppe Luftflotte 4 - 1./Nachtschlachtgruppe 6 so no need to keep looking on my behalf.

I am very pleased to discover:

13.08.1943 3.Störkampfst. F Gotha Go 145 WNr. 2766 ?? + ?? Wischesteblijewskaja Bedienungsfehler (Luftflotte 4) 90 % Uffz. Lindner, Erwin (F) Verl

Confirmation that Erwin Lindner was indeed a Flugzeugfuhrer!

Thanks for your help Andy, I am grateful.

Regards Richard.
