Köln and the invasion of Norway

Post by aj906 » 07 Jul 2020 09:34

Are there any verified pictures showing the Köln during the opening days of Weserübung? I am specifically interested in trying to find out whether she carried an aircraft and if so, what its fuselage code was. Any help greatly appreciated!

Köln didnt have a aircraft when entering Bergen 9th of april 1940.
Not sure what you think of about fuselage markings. Köln was painted the ordinary naval grey, with the top of the gunturrets painted red.
Added part of a photo of Köln in Bergen. Give me some time and ill provide more.
