Last German plane shot down

Post by Kurt_Steiner » 14 May 2004 16:25

Which was the last German plane shot down in WW2? When? Where? By whom?

Asking too much? :P

Some people says an Arado 232 on the 26th, some others a Störch... Any idea? (from http://p069.ezboard.com/fluftwaffeexper ... D=59.topic)

Best regards

Listen you have picked the hardest question, but in the last days of war there could have been many aircrafts shotdown it will not be an answerable question. Why? because only God would know it. You will never find out.

Wait! you could find out by going through German Military Archives that has the date of the aircraft shotdown and the man who flew and all you need to know about it, but you would have to do reasearch the dates of all the aircrafts in 1945 through the month,day, hour minute and second. thats if you could somehow gain accesses to it?

In 2nd May Oberleutnant Peter Crump from I./JG26 was shot down by Tempest.He bailed out unharmed.

In 3rd May Uffz.Werner Molge from II./JG26 was forced to bail out from his plane,when its engine caught fire.He bailed out unharmed.Its unknown was the cause of the fire a enemy action or mechanical failure.

The plane type is Fw and most likely D-9 version.

You can find them via http://www.luftwaffe.no

These listings are compiled by a group of researchers in Norway, and are as far as I know, 99% correct. They have spent years researching these events.....
