Re-use of Destroyed Aircraft Codes in Luftwaffe?

Post by Mistel1 » 16 May 2003 21:26

Hello. I would like to know whether the codes of a destroyed Luftwaffe aircraft was used again in a same or different type of a/c in that Geschwader. For example, the Me110D having codes 5F+CM was downed in 1940. Was there no other 5F+CM plane in Luftwaffe after this date, or is it possible?

Hello!

Yes of course they were reused. They indicated the Staffel and the aircraft within the Staffel.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Christoph. Now I'm sure that I haven't seen a ghost... :)
