Don’t think it’s correct as the plane in question also has what looks like a yellow “bar” in the white “belt” (4 + -).
The illustration only seems to have a yellow 4 (4 +)).
Could it be from the 6./JG 27 which seem to have had the extra “bar” on the planes?

Maybe this image of the other side is more clear if it’s the same plane... looks like a faded “bar” through the white.

Also worth looking at is what seems to be the missing “dark blob” camouflage shown on the illustration.

Is possible identify the exact version of this Heinkel He 111?

It's an early version, with dustbin, all 6 exhaust under the wing are visible, more likely B-1, or B-2

Hi von thoma,

Well, I think the dustbin ventral position was had by almost all the initial versions of the He 111, not only the B, and I am not able to distinguish the exhausts of the engines in the photo....

Thanks, Markus.. :wink:

Probably you are right

According to this link, this plane could be a Ju 52/3m ce or nai or vai version
https://www.avrosys.nu/aircraft/Transpo ... 255Tp5.htm

The "ce" and "nai" civil versions was powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, Hornet or Wasp, according to Wikipedia.
However the Wasp was a much less powerful engine (around 450hp) compared to the Hornet (around 750hp) ... :?

About the "vai" version, I don`t have any information....

Regards

No, it is not RWD-13. It's a little bit similar, but fin and wings shapes, as well as undercarriage arrangement are completely different.
It's DH.85 Leopard Moth.

A funny thing, according to the late LEMB Stkz database, TD+IL belonged to Go 242 W.Nr. 0022 - so the registration had to be reused.
