JG53 "PikAs" in Italy: need infos.

Post by gabriel pagliarani » 03 Mar 2004 22:34

Recently I have read that Jg53 displaced some Fw-190 in Italy and some ANR pilots like Zuccarin, Migliavacca and others had the chance to taste those beauties for a while. There were any JaBos displaced in North Italy? Any photo or comment? Till yesterday I was pretty sure that no FW-JaBo was displaced in Italy: evidently I was wrong.

Gabriel U need a copy of the JG 53 Pik As buch bei Dr. Jochen Prien via Struve Druck Verlag from Eutin, Deutschland.........this will give you the confirmation of only Bf 109's in the unit plus the Flügplatz. It will be all U will ever need on the Geschwader.

Gabriel unfortunately the last volume covers the last couple of years so it will not cover the ops in Afrika and the Med I do not think..... (?)
