Sad news re: Wolfgang Falck; thanks for sharing it, though.

There's a whole chapter/tribute to this great pilot and tactical innovator in Toliver & Constable, Fighter Aces of the Luftwaffe.

And a very detailed biography page at http://www.luftwaffe.cz/falck.html .


Best,
~ Mike Miller

Hi Krollspell

Does that mean that Weiler won his RK for actions in west front, more specifically around Metz?

Hello again Spirow!

Scherzer gives the theatre of operation (for the award-winning action) as Westen...

Well if the designation "Div. Nr. 462" can translate (have any connection to) 462. Infanterie-Division, the answer could be yes...
