P-51 Attack Mostar-Süd Airfield, 2 July 1944 - Help Needed

Post by MDPiii » 26 Aug 2017 19:40

I am primarily interested in specific unit records for 4.Batterie/Flak Regiment 9 “Legion Condor” - specifically involving noon July 2, 1944 at Mostar-Sud Airfield in Bosnia Herzogovenia. Does anyone know how to access Luftwaffe records, say, via Bundesarchives? I am particularly interested in what has been recorded elsewhere as a strafing attack by a single U.S. P-51. The Mustang was reported destroyed by the flak battery, its pilot killed along with several members of the gun crew. I'm interested in any details of the attack, confirmation of what has been reported elsewhere, other damage inflicted on German aircraft, and recovery of the pilot's body, First Lieutenant Ralph K. Hofer of Missouri.
