The supposed three victories by JG 1 flying the Heinkel are still under investigation......

Eric Mombeek's JG 1
Dr. Jochen Prien's JG 1 und JG 11, volume 3.

The I. gruppe was more concerned about staying alive than flying the dangerous bird as examples of their war diary suggest. At least 5 pilots were killed while flying the bird in test runs, from engine failure to having the wing ripped off the fuselage. Both books hsow the lin-up of Heinkels all dressed for surrender to RAF troops with the leading staffel and gruppen kommandeurs standing around chatting........

Arvo, good work !!
